Community

The Junior League of Halifax’s Community Committee takes an active role in design, implementation and evaluation of direct and indirect service projects benefiting the women and children of Halifax. Members volunteering on community projects are afforded the opportunity to gain experience in the following areas: needs assessment, using a workplan to meet strategic goals, budgeting, curriculum development and working with non-profit and other community partners.  An enduring placement on the Community Committee is geared for a member to build competency in multiple areas and, if so desired, increase skills to an advanced level as preparation for leadership in the League and the wider civic environment.  Volunteers use compassion and creativity to further the mission of the Junior League by developing their own potential and improving the community in meaningful, tangible ways.
