Addressing Community Needs
The Junior League, one of the oldest, largest and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, has matured and evolved since it was founded. Our commitment, has remained unwavering: to develop exceptionally qualified civic leaders who can identify a community’s most urgent and pressing needs and address them with meaningful and relevant programs and initiatives that not only improve lives, but change the way people think.
The Strategic Development Council is in place to provide direction and opportunities for growth as the Junior League of Ogden moves forward.
The Strategic Development Council is focused on discovering “what is our next?”. The Junior League of Ogden is an incubator of new projects and as we move forward we want to choose projects that line up with the vision of Junior League, impact the community and engage our current members.
Possible projects the Council is evaluating are:
• Building awareness of human trafficking in Utah, particularly the Ogden area
• Assisting the resettlement of refugees in the community of Ogden
• Partnering with Weber-Morgan Health Department and other local organizations in tackling the issue of obesity in Weber county
