Community Programs

The Junior League of the Palm Beaches is dedicated to making a lasting impact throughout Palm Beach County. To do this, we have established several programs to help us meet the needs of our community.

The Alliance for Period Supplies at the Junior League of the Palm Beaches

JLPB, in partnership with the National Alliance for Period Supplies, accepts donated pads and panty liners that we distribute to various organizations in our community to help women in need. Learn more. 

D.I.A.D. (Done in A Day)

Through our DIAD program, JLPB  partners with and supports more than 20 non-profit organizations. We assist with a variety of projects that can be completed in one day, ensuring that our volunteers are able to quickly respond to our community’s needs. Partners include Back to Basics Angel Program, CROS Ministries Gleaning, Feeding South Florida, Loggerhead Marinelife Center Beach Clean Ups, Palm Beach County Food Bank, Quantum House, Red Apple Supplies, and The Lord’s Place.

Eye & Ear Alert

Since 1968, JLPB’s Eye & Ear Alert has provided free vision and hearing screenings to preschoolers and young children to detect possible concerns for effective correction. The group provides onsite screenings throughout the year in Palm Beach County. Thousands of children have participated in Eye & Ear Alert screenings. Learn more.

Kids in The Kitchen

This ongoing initiative is focused on educating children and their families about nutrition and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle through education, cooking demonstrations and fitness workshops. Learn more.

Literacy & Creativity

Our Literacy & Creativity program provides children ages 3 and older with educational and recreational activities that allow them to flourish, build self-esteem and make connections. Our comprehensive curriculum promotes reading, comprehension, creativity, and hands-on learning with children at the Florence De George Boys & Girls Club, BRIDGES at Riviera Beach, and Quantum House.

Mentorship

Our Mentorship program helps build self- esteem and confidence in young people ages 12 to 22 by providing adult interaction, teaching life skills, instilling hope, and empowering the young in an effort to decrease the incidence of adult detention. Current community partners include Lutheran Homes, Vita Nova, and Florence De George Boys & Girls Club.

Pink Palm

Pink Palm was created to help make various local nonprofit organizations’ lives a little easier by supplying care packages filled with life’s necessities for expectant mothers, homeless men and women, foster children, and children affected by the opioid crisis. Hundreds of care packages are created each year by JLPB volunteers.
