The Junior League of Long Island partners with local nonprofit organizations or service agencies to provide volunteers for projects that can be completed in one day. For each of these “Done In A Day” projects, a group of members provide hands-on volunteer work while providing our partners trained, enthusiastic volunteers.
Through these DIAD projects, we provide immediate volunteer assistance to local organizations and attempt to assess community needs and learn more about other nonprofit and social service organizations that could potentially benefit from the volunteer work and leadership skills that JLLI offers. With the success of these projects over the years we have formed partnerships that have led to grants, scholarships, training and community impact.
To submit an idea for a Done In A Day project, please complete the DIAD online application. Ideal projects require a minimum of 4 volunteers, are 4-6 hours long, and are completed in one day. Decisions are made on a rolling basis by the Done In A Day Committee. If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
