We’re Focused on What Matters Most Right Now in Indian River County

At the Junior League of Indian River we live in the moment. To us, that means adjusting our focus according to our community’s most pressing needs. Our work is always evolving, and that keeps us on our toes, striving for progress, and preparing to take on whatever comes next.

Our current community goal of raising awareness related to violence against women can be achieved by supporting the Junior League of Indian River in our annual Little Black Dress Initiative “LBDI”; providing donations to the Junior League of Indian River’s “Survivor Bags”; supporting the League through our Community Impact Projects, such as the Women, Wealth, and Health Fair; and, supporting the League through donating toward our Annual Campaign.

Our goal is to help Indian River County women develop civic leadership skills through the work they do, then put those talents to work in the communities that need it. Our current focus of raising awareness regarding violence against women gives women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where they live and work.

We’re Creating Fulfilling Leadership Opportunities Throughout Indian River County

The Junior League of Indian River offers so much more than local volunteering opportunities! Our League of leaders creates real change by advancing social activism-focused projects that directly benefit the communities of Indian River County. By giving women the tools to lead, educating them about their communities’ needs, and helping them put their unique brand of creativity and skill to work, the Junior League of Indian River is making a big impact on Indian River County.

We’re Transforming Indian River County Communities By Challenging the Status Quo

No matter what we’re currently focusing on, the Junior League of Indian River’s work centers around improving our local communities through effective action and leadership. We have identified raising awareness regarding violence against women as the most pressing issue in our community right now, and we are helping local women take action to resolve it. So far this year, we have participated in the Little Black Dress Initiative which helped us raise awareness regarding domestic violence while simultaneously raising funds for the local domestic violence shelter, SafeSpace. We will be hosting our Women, Wealth and Health fair this Spring, which is free to the community and provides access to an extensive number of resources and organizations in our community that are available. Further, we have hosted our “Passport to Local” event in which we sell “passports” containing discounts to local businesses and we use the proceeds of the passport sales to benefit our focus areas.
