Thank you for visiting the Junior League of Tallahassee’s (JLT) website! I have the honor of serving as JLT’s President for the 2022-2023 League year. Whether you are a JLT member, sponsor, donor, or a member of the Tallahassee community, we thank you for your support of our League.

This year, we are focused on the JLT Impact. Through advocacy and volunteering, our JLT members continue to address local issues, with a focus on supporting the basic needs of women and children. We kicked off this year with the creation of the 2022-2025 JLT Strategic Plan, which will give us direction as we continue to increase our impact in the Tallahassee community. We have also fully launched our new branding, which aligns us with our parent organization, the Association of Junior League International (AJLI). We are so excited to have #embracethered!

Our Community Impact continues to expand. We have selected our next two-year Jill Pope Community Partnership: Sabal Palm Elementary School. We are so excited to partner with their team. We have also expanded our relationship with HOPE Community, elevating them to a Strategic Partnership for the next three years. Mighty Meals and Kids’ Boutique, our two JLT Signature projects, continue to grow and serve more families here in Tallahassee.

We have been excited to see the increase in our Funding Impact over the past two years. The Little Black Dress Initiative continues to be our most successful advocacy and fundraising event, with JLT members sharing about the needs in our community with their networks and the Tallahassee community every November. We had our biggest Bold Sips event yet, and this event is continuing to grow. We also continue to feel our Tallahassee community’s support through our Golf Classic and Sponsorships and Grants.

Part of the JLT mission is to train effective volunteers, and our Training Impact has really taken off in the last two years. JLT won the AJLI Public Policy & Advocacy award in May, for our work on creating an advocacy plan and certificate training tracks for members. In addition, our members have access to high-impact trainings in the areas of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, and Leadership.

I invite you to continue to follow along with the impact the JLT will make in our community this year. If you would like more information about partnering with or supporting JLT as this fiscal year unfolds, please contact me at [email protected]. We cannot do our work without your continued support.

Yours in Service,

Becca Piers
2022-2023 President
Junior League of Tallahassee
