The Junior League of Baltimore is proud to be an integral part of the Baltimore community. Here are just a few of our local initiatives.
This community outreach focuses on mentoring four qualified women within the Govans community through two 12 week internship cycles (one fall, one spring) at the Junior League owned Wise Penny Thrift Store. Throughout the program, the interns will receive on-the-job training in store management, sales, inventory, and customer service as well as one-on-one mentoring to help them set goals and achieve them.
The Kids in the Kitchen programs are part of an international Junior League initiative to combat childhood obesity. We offer two Kids in the Kitchen programs: a one day Kids in the Kitchen event at Port Discovery and our 8 week Kids in the Kitchen On the Road program that is held in our Headquarters in Govans.
Kids in the Kitchen is a one-day event hosted at Port Discovery offering fun, interactive stations and workshops for more than 1,700 children to learn about health and fitness, with a focus on nutrition.
Kids in the Kitchen on the Road is a project which expands our one-day Kids in the Kitchen event into an 8-week program . The program is held at JLB Headquarters on Saturday mornings and runs approximately one hour. The program services 4th and 5th graders. Upon certified graduation, the participants and their families receive a 1-year free membership to the Y of Central Maryland.
Our Junior League Headquarters is a multi-purpose space designed to serve the community, both for our own community programs and also many other community organizations and programs.
This Junior League of Baltimore choral group, formed in 1957, is the oldest continuous community project of our League. The Larks provide not only recreation, but emotional support to the elderly, disabled, and people in need through the "gift of song". A crucial part of The Larks outreach in the Baltimore community is to engage with its audiences in sing-a-longs. These bring smiles, laughs, memories, or just the tapping of a toe to those often isolated from the community due to age or disability.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule the Larks to sing for your group or organization.
