Community Partners

For its entire history, The Junior League of Ann Arbor, Michigan has played a major role in bringing positive change to the City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County. From advocating for improved legislation for human trafficking and bringing awareness to domestic and dating violence, to founding community centers like The Ronald McDonald House and Ann Arbor Hands On Museum, and creating programs to ensure families have fresh fruit and vegetables on their dinner tables, Junior League of Ann Arbor members have tackled tough issues with dedication and professionalism. But we have not done this alone.

Depending on the situation or the initiative under development, the Junior League of Ann Arbor has relied on a spectrum of friends and allies, partners and peers, to get our job done. These collaborative configurations can take many forms and include any of the following: local agencies with insight into a particular community’s need; a national organization with operations in many states that is aligned with individual Leagues; and international associations with goals similar to those of the Junior League of Ann Arbor.

A legacy of collaboration

To do this important work, The Junior League has partnered with hundreds of national, international, and local not-for-profits and NGOs who know the landscape, the issues at stake, or the key players who can be tapped to be part of the solution. The Junior League then works with its partners to devise a solution to a problem that benefits the community.

Why partner with us?

A partnership with The Junior League of Ann Arbor accomplishes several objectives. First, it ensures that a program or an initiative that is needed in a community—an after-school program, mentoring for foster children, a mobile pediatric clinic—has a good chance of succeeding because it takes the interests of all stakeholders into account and applies a volunteer leadership team of negotiators, collaborators, and service providers to the task. Second, it helps the partner NGO or nonprofit get closer to fulfilling its mission.
