The Junior League of Birmingham supports community agencies and organizations in the greater Birmingham area with one-time hands-on service through the Go the Extra Mile – Volunteer Days program. This program is open to all league members who wish to complete additional community volunteer work on top of their yearly placement obligations. As opposed to Corps of Volunteers, which focuses on special events and fundraisers, Go the Extra Mile volunteers provide support for larger service projects such as clean-up days, painting, landscape work, and more. For support with long-term ongoing projects over a course of weeks or months, please see “Community Placements”.
Previous Project Examples:
One Place Metro Alabama Family Justice Center – new location landscaping, Inglenook Elementary School – Baseball field clean up and revitalization, Cahaba River Cleanup, Firehouse Shelter – lunch service and goody bag packing, Birmingham Talks – Office Relocation & Set-Up
