CURRENT COMMUNITY PROJECTS

Advocacy

JLCV's Advocacy Committee was launched in 2017. Through the Advocacy Committee, JLCV is currently focusing its advocacy work on access to quality early education. Specifically, in conjunction with community partner Vermont Early Childhood Alliance, JLCV has advocated state senators and representatives for an increase in funding of $9.2 million to Vermont's Child Care Financial Assistance Program. It is also hosted a film viewing and panel discussion of "The Raising of America: Early Childhood and the Future of Our Nation

Ronald McDonald House

JLCV has a long-standing commitment to this charity- in addition to fully renovating the family playroom, we also provide ongoing bi-monthly homemade meals to the families staying at the house.

Done-in-a-Day Projects

Each year, JLCV responds to needs in the community by researching, organizing and participating in short-term volunteer projects that can be accomplished in just a day. 

Projects respond to a variety of community needs. Past “Done-in-a-Day” projects include Saturday Sort-A-Thons at the Vermont Food Bank, Green Up Day at COTS, Volunteering at the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, Cleaning the LUND Childcare Center, making meals at the Hope Lodge, and providing support at the annual Girls on the Run event. Future Projects will continue to support organizations previously stated and will partner with new organizations.
