The Junior League of Indian River (JLIR) is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
Over the past 25 years, the Junior League of Indian River (JLIR) has made an impact in the community by developing an array of Long Term Programs. JLIR has a strong record of identifying unmet needs in the community and developing programs to address the gaps. We provide professional expertise, financial backing, and trained volunteers. Each member volunteers a minimum of ten hours to the current program yearly, and these programs stay within JLIR for an average of three to five years. Once our programs are successfully launched and operating independently, we transition those programs to other agencies and continue to support them on a reduced scale. We then re-evaluate the community's unmet needs and begin to develop and sponsor a new program. Our current Long Term Program is Whole Child Indian River.
In addition to a Long Term Program, JLIR also participates in more than five Short Term Programs each year referred to as Community Impact Projects (CIPs). Recognizing that many Indian River County agencies have a "wish list" of numerous short-term projects which may never come to fruition due to lack of resources, time, money etc., JLIR partners with these agencies to address unmet needs of children and families in the community. Over the past 25 years, our members have planned, funded, implemented, and participated in over 100 projects!
