The Junior League of Miami awards college scholarships to high school senior girls who demonstrate exceptional service to their community, both in and outside of school, while excelling in their academics.
When you think about the word – library – you may think books, wood shelving, computers, librarians, but dogs? Yes, dogs. Dogs are now part of the library’s image and these furry four-legged pets have created a ton of goodwill and a passion for reading for children who have difficulty reading out loud in public.
Done in a Day is a signature JLM community project that assists local organizations with short-term events within the League’s focus areas. These projects and events can be accomplished in one day.
