The Junior League of Northern Virginia (JLNV) partners with community agencies that reflect our mission, vision and values. Focused on combating childhood obesity through physical activity and nutrition education, the JLNV provides much-needed volunteer resources and funding, and serves as a catalyst for positive change through our partnerships.
Each year, the JLNV donates thousands of volunteer hours to community agencies and programs in alignment with our mission and focus area. This year, through our community grants program alone, the JLNV will contribute more than 250 volunteer hours, valued at more than $5,700, along with $17,000 in grant funding to our community partners.
The JLNV has members who also serve as JLNV ambassadors to community organizations and work as a partner with the organization on behalf of the JLNV as part of our in-community placements. The JLNV currently has In-Community Placements with the Fairfax Food Council and Fairfax Community Action Advisory Board. The League continues to seek additional in-community placement opportunities.

Community Partnership Program
Through its Community Partnership program, the JLNV annually awards grants of funds and/or volunteer hours to support community programs in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties. The JLNV would like to support innovative projects or programs that will measurably improve the lives of children in our community by empowering them to make healthy food and lifestyle choices to help reverse the growth of childhood obesity and its associated health issues.
