Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

We exist for three main reasons that feel very strongly about. We believe that focusing on these three things is what our women, children and community need.

Training Members

Encouraging and strenghtening the women of our league to be leaders of change is a valuable reason why JLBC exists today. We utilize networking to teach and mentor women to become succesful in her own career and within Leage itself.  

Community Impact

As long as we train one another we will grow stronger as a community of leaders. We feel that engaging in trainings and volunteerism is a very important tool. Reaching out to the community only builds a stronger community.
