EDUCATION & CULTURE

The Junior League of Birmingham believes that education is the foundation to achieve one’s full potential and all children should have access to a quality education that sparks and unlocks that potential. We also believe all individuals should have the opportunity to develop cultural competence by learning history, values, beliefs, and perspectives of people from different backgrounds. We are currently supporting initiatives that promote literacy, success in school, and school readiness.

The Junior League of Birmingham has dedicated 101 volunteers and $93,150 to these projects. Dollar amount does not include SAIL.
