Promoting Nutrition, Creating Access

The Junior League of Ann Arbor is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

What are we doing?

Strong Moms Strong Girls

Strong Moms Strong Girls is a curriculum addressing the challenges of relational aggression. Relational aggression is a broad term but includes behaviors such as gossiping, spreading rumors, or threatening to reject or exclude someone (from Girlfighting, Lyn Mikel Brown). The goal of the program is to familiarize parents, educators, and caregivers with the uniqueness and intricacies of relational aggression. Strong Moms Strong Girls gives participants language and tools to be able to identify relational aggression and reduce its impact on girls. While Strong Moms Strong Girls addresses all relational aggression, the curriculum emphasizes “Figuring Out Friendships” – the relational aggression that can happen between friends. 

Kids in the Kitchen

On April 21st from 6:30-7:30pm, kids in grades 1-5 can join the Junior League of Ann Arbor at the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum for an evening workshop "SENSEible Eating", as part of the Kids in the Kitchen program. Kids will do science experiments focused on the senses, make a nutritious snack, and play games. Food provided by the People’s Food Co-op. Register for this event here!
