JLBC joins the Lakeview Square Mall handing out school and dental supplies at the Back to School Party/Community Day Event. Children recieved free notebooks, pencils, healthy cookbooks, chef hats, pedometers, and stress balls. Children wishing to recieve a new toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss were able to do so at the event. Thank you to our generous sponsor Consumers Credit Union and our three year dental partner Grace Health!
JLBC becomes a sponsor to the anti-bullying campaign at Lakeview High School. JLBC supports programs/projects that build self-esteem for women and children. Kindness is one of the most significant contributors to a positive school climate. When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.
The 3rd Annual Women's Summit & Brunch was a success! Thank you to everyone for coming out and supporting JLBC. As part of our mission, we aim to build women as leaders and our annual women's summit aims to do just that! Each year our members choose a theme that we believe will impact women's lives in our community. This year's theme was "Women's Health First." Read more about the summit below!

"Hands down, Junior League is one of the most effective organizations training women to be engaged as civic leaders. I have meet women from all over the country and felt extremly tied to the collective work happening within the Michigan Junior Leagues. There are not many spaces that give women the opportunity to take calculated risks and learn in a very experiential way. This has been the best part of my Junior League experience. As a member, you choose to us your own unique skills and talents to help your community. There have been ways that I have longed to learn to better myself and become a better leader and Junior League has helped me cultivate those passions. I don't think any woman that becomes a member can say that she hasn't grown in some unique way."
