President’s Message

 

Thank you for your interest in the Junior League of Beaumont, Inc.!
Since 1937, the Junior League of Beaumont has been committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We are a diverse group of women of different backgrounds, ages, professions, and talents. We are empowered women who empower each other to be leaders, to identify challenges in our community where our members can make an impact, and to develop creative solutions for these issues. Together, we are unstoppable.

For the 2019-2020 year, the Junior League of Beaumont is focusing on our efforts and resources on
projects such as our Abolish committee helping to combat human trafficking; Done-In-A-Day committee which provides trained volunteers to assist our community partners with short-term volunteer needs; Healthy Behaviors committee which promotes healthy lifestyles for children to help combat childhood obesity; Jr. Junior League committee that works with middle school aged girls to educate and train them on how to become community volunteers; Lemonade Day committee who partners with the Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce to host Lemonade Day in Southeast Texas which teaches children about the power of entrepreneurship to help them become business leaders and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow; and Transitioning Youth which assists teens who are aging out off the foster care system. The JLB also provides Community Assistant Fund grants to assist local area non-profits with emergency needs.

We are grateful to our donors, community partners and sponsors, past and present, who have provided support to make our efforts a reality. Without your helping hand, we would not be where we are today.

Sincerely,
Shannon Copeland Figueroa
President, Junior League of Beaumont 2019-2020
