The Junior League of Birmingham believes that the following four Impact Areas are fundamental to the overall well-being of a community and its individuals:
OVERCOMING POVERTY & FINANCIAL INSTABILITY

ADVANCING 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.
IMPROVING HEALTH & WELLBEING
The Junior League of Birmingham believes improving health outcomes and overall wellbeing is fundamental to creating a vibrant community. Healthy children and adults are better able to learn and work productively. We believe preventive healthcare and healthy lifestyle choices are critical components of an individual’s overall health.
