Issue Area

In 2014, we embarked on a transformation to keep the JLP Mission relevant in the 21st century. The shift in our mindset has been noticeable as we’ve re-oriented ourselves toward making a long lasting and sustainable impact. To illustrate the change, consider this example: In our past “project-based” approach, a League member may have fulfilled her volunteer obligation with a three-hour shift spent reading to a child and two hours leading an art tour. The legacy of those projects still lives on through our done in a days and community partners, but moving forward, we updated our focus and training.

Converting the volunteer experience to an “issue-based” context, our members now approach our signature projects having been educated on labor force statistics for women, the factors that negatively impact earnings gaps, how state and federal policy impacts working women, what changes in development practices can improve career advancement, what intervention is required, what non-profit resources and services are available, and a method to measure impact. I can’t wait to see how the transition continues to cultivate us as civic and community leaders with the skills needed to meet the demands of today’s society.

The shift has already had a profound influence on our community programs. So far, we’ve flexed these new skills while leading Lean In Circles, volunteering at Women’s Career Workshops, donating to Development Drives, advocating for legislation, and reaching out to our non-profit neighbors to launch PasadenaHelp.org. Thanks to the work we’re doing, I’m so proud to announce that we have set a new JLP record! During this league year, our members have given back over 475 hours, and to date we’ve offered a whopping 28 opportunities to earn those hours! My sincere appreciation goes out to all our members who have generously given their time already. Every hour counts and helps us achieve our vision of JLP empowering women to break barriers in order to build our futures and strengthen our communities!
