Are you, or do you know, a young woman living in Stark County who would like to make a difference? Do you have a great idea for a project, but lack the resources to accomplish that project? As an integral part of our mission, The Junior League of Stark County aims to not only improve communities, but also to promote voluntarism and develop the potential of women. To that end, we are pleased to announce a new JLSC initiative: A Junior Leaders Community Service Grant, designed to assist young women in grades Kindergarten through 12 to realize their dreams of helping those in need in their local communities.
Applications for this year are now closed. Stay tuned for information this summer for an application and more information.
