What does the Junior League of Sarasota do?

The Junior League of Sarasota is a non-profit organization of trained, hands-on volunteers that has been working to address some of the most difficult issues Sarasota faces for more than 60 years. You may be familiar with some of our legacy projects, many of which are now separate organizations. We are responsible for the creation of organizations such as ChildrenFirst, the Child Protection Center and Team Court; built the first handicapped accessible playground; purchased and stocked household goods for new homes at Harvest House; etc. These are just a few of the charitable works that the Junior League has been a key part of. The year we have a focus on Aging Out of Foster Care.

When we recognize a crisis, our 250+ members turn hard-work and resources into solutions. Every year, hundreds of young adults age out of the foster care system without parental guidance to help them establish themselves and their futures. The Junior League of Sarasota is joining the fight to support and assist the youth of the foster care system in Sarasota County by creating an impactful program that will help them obtain life skills and education necessary to become self-sufficient, live independently, and maintain employment. Attending Jamboree means that you are not only going to have a great evening with animals, but you are helping Junior League of Sarasota help those in the community who need it most.
