Recognizing the emotional, social, and educational challenges faced by young people under the age of 18, The Association of Junior Leagues initiated a national program to teach leadership them skills and voluntarism—and to help them build self-esteem.
Various Leagues under the auspices of The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc.
The Association of Junior Leagues International undertook a three-year demonstration project, entitled “Volunteers Intervening for Equity,” to test the feasibility of training educated retirees to serve as advocates for others.
