The Junior League of Long Island has a yearly mission of improving our community through the effective action of trained women and a vision to challenge women to greatness through volunteering, compassion, friendship, and commitment to improving our community, our members are active in a variety of local community projects.
The League fundraises all year round in order to fuel these amazing projects financially and through volunteers, to make a difference in our local communities. From the arts to education and health to science, Junior League has created and supported some of Long Island’s most vital nonprofit organizations.
We partner 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.
