Enriching Minds and Lives with Trained Volunteers since 1940

Community Impact

Kids in the Kitchen

Kids in the Kitchen is a program aimed at teaching kids and parents to become healthier by providing hands-on learning opportunities, giving access to healthy recipes, and learn new ways to provide nutritious, family-friendly meals.

School Supply Train

The Junior League School Supply Train is one of our shining stars! Taking place since 1993, this program provides free school supplies, uniforms, and a new pair of shoes to area children who meet income eligibility requirements. Since its inception, the Junior League of Longview, Inc. has pumped over $466,000 back into East Texas and provided school supplies for over 47,000 children.

Done in a Day

The Junior League of Longview’s Done in a Day project is an opportunity for our membership to serve local organizations by offering our volunteer “woman” power for ONE day! This allows the League to impact numerous, established projects to reach their goals and hopefully accomplish even more than they had aspired to through our financial resources and the help of our trained volunteers.

Helping Hands

Helping Hands is a way for the Junior League of Longview, Inc. to help serve in our community through hands-on work.  This project came about because of the change in composition of membership over the years to a more career based membership of women, with a desire to see immediate results of volunteering!  Our focus as a League is to make an impact on poverty through literacy in a variety of aspects.  This project lends an opportunity to aide in poverty related organizations on a monthly basis.  Our members serve meals and volunteer at organizations such as New Gate Ministries, Highway 80 Rescue Mission, Hope Haven, Meals on Wheels, and many other outreach programs.  In addition, League members create fun ways to play games and lead activities for children in hopes of brightening their day!

Read as One

Read as One promotes literacy within our Longview community by working with children, adolescents, women, and the elderly. By enriching the lives of others through activities that support the love of reading, members of our community will be provided new literature and opportunities to have greater access to books. Read as One supports that collectively we are ONE League, serving in ONE community, reaching ONE individual, ONE book at a time.

Skills for Success

Skills for Success is a mentoring program aimed at middle school to high school girls in need of guidance and mentorship. The program will partner with Forever Friends, a program with Partners in Prevention and meet with girls to help them explore different career options, find their passion and give them the tools to help them to be successful
