The Junior League of San Diego (JLSD) is dedicated to serving the greater San Diego area. JLSD is currently focused on supporting San Diego County transition-age foster youth (TAY) as they make the critical transition into independent adult life.
2014-2015 Community Projects
Since 2012, JLSD has dedicated member volunteer efforts and financial resources to this area. Current programs include college textbook scholarship opportunities, Tools for Success life skills workshops, Community Partner engagement, the Solutions Summit, a groundbreaking, multi-day conference designed to facilitate collaboration among existing TAY service providers to improve large-scale issues and the mentoring program which provide TAY with a stable adult relationship to assist with their transition to independent life. The JLSD State Public Affairs Committee and the Advocacy Committee work to advocate for women and children’s issues on the local, state, and national level. In addition to this specific scope of work, JLSD continues to impact the community through its "done-in-a-day" Impact projects which support many organizations throughout San Diego County.
