We’re Focused on What Matters Most Right Now in Longview
At the Junior League of Longview we live in the moment. To us, that means adjusting our focus according to our community’s most pressing needs. Our work is always evolving, and that keeps us on our toes, striving for progress, and preparing to take on whatever comes next.
Our current community goal to enrich our community by devoting our resources to positively impact the welfare of people in the East Texas area can be achieved by doing developing programs that are member-focused and centered around our community goals, educating and training members and the community about the League and our service, and expanding and developing collaborative partnerships with community organizations. So far we have done work in all of these areas to achieve this, and are working to make even more progress in the coming year.
Our goal is to help Longview women develop civic leadership skills through the work they do, then put those talents to work in the communities that need it. Our current focus of poverty gives women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where they live and work.
