An inspiring excerpt from Alison Bushan‘s President’s Message:
For our newest members: My goal this year is to help you forge connections with one another and develop a passion for what you are seeking from the League… a passion for improving your community? A passion for developing your own potential and that of your peers? A passion for fundraising? Or perhaps a passion for becoming a better more trained leader than you were before joining us.
For our Leadership: My goal this year is that you learn what it means to be a “Servant Leader” and that you are trained and equipped with everything necessary to support our volunteers and community partners as you develop your ideas to further the work of the League and improve the membership experience.
For our membership: It is my goal that the objectives of our strategic plan are met this year by running our organization effectively while maintaining our membership satisfaction, community partnerships, and raising the necessary monies to fund our community and mission based projects. We are a special and unique organization that truly empowers our volunteers to take on the challenges of working collaboratively, leading committees, creating service projects that improve the lives of people in our community, and developing innovative fundraising techniques. The Junior League not only gives our volunteers these opportunities, we give them extensive training to do so, through on the job training, mentorship, and attendance at a variety of in-depth conferences across the country led by Community and Global Leaders.
For our Community Partners: We have a long rich history of working together and making miracles happen. It is my goal to continue to build these relationships and cultivate new ones as we commit ourselves to making lasting and transformational changes in the lives of those leaving the Foster Care System and striving to become successful, independent young adults.
