President's Message

Erin Leventhal
JLSD President 2014-2015

With a rich 85 year history of improving the San Diego community, the Junior League of San Diego (JLSD) is one of the oldest, largest and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in San Diego. In fact, JLSD is the only organization in San Diego committed to improving the lives of transition-age foster youth, while raising up the next generation of women leaders in our community. Over our 85 year history, JLSD has delivered tens of thousands of trained women volunteers into San Diego’s nonprofit community.

While we have spent many decades addressing some of San Diego’s most critical issues, JLSD also understands the need to evolve to meet the changing needs of our membership and the community we serve. Our 2014-2017 Strategic Plan is designed to drive JLSD through 2017 and focuses on four key goals to move our organization forward:

  • Grow the size and diversity of JLSD’s membership
  • Ensure the financial health of JLSD through sustainable and diversified revenue sources
  • Create sustainable project(s) serving San Diego’s transition-age youth (TAY)
  • Increase awareness and understanding of JLSD in San Diego and within the League

These four strategic goals reflect significant member feedback regarding the future direction of JLSD, and we look forward to working together as an organization to accomplish these objectives over the next three years.

Thank you for your support of the Junior League of San Diego. It’s going to be an exciting year as JLSD drives toward our mission of training women volunteers to make an impact in San Diego!

In Community Spirit,

Erin Leventhal
