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

Kids in the Kitchen began over 10 years ago to address the growing issue of childhood obesity.  In collaboration with our community partner, The Ann Arbor Hands on Musuem, we provide workshops throughout the year to promote healthy eating and lifestyles.  Check back for more information on our upcoming events soon!
