The Junior League of San Jose builds partnerships and seeks solutions that make a lasting impact on our ever-changing community. For the years, JLSJ has been developing an Issue-Based Community Impact model. In this model, we are seeking to change and improve systems and services of importance in our community. Our goal is to develop and support the civic leadership skills of our members in philanthropy, advocacy and public service. Our current efforts and commitment are directed toward helping foster youth successfully transition out of foster care.
JLSJ provides Community Grants to organizations that directly serve transitional age foster youth (TAY) in Santa Clara County.
