The Junior League of Oklahoma City annually accepts applications for new community partners. Beginning in 2014, JLOC’s focus area for volunteer efforts became, “A healthy community begins with you – encouraging healthy living, a healthy lifestyle and a healthy YOU.” As such, partner project proposals should contain a Health focus for consideration.
Please review the criteria and suggestions listed below. If your organization and project fall within the parameters of our focus area, please submit a Community Partner Interest Form. Our next application process will begin June 2017.
If your agency submitted an application in June/July 2016, you will be informed of the outcome of you proposal(s) prior to January 2017.
For further information, questions or clarification, please contact Research, Education and Development (READ) Chair, Amanda Harding. We look forward to hearing from you!
SUGGESTIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS:
While we strive to offer projects for our volunteers at different times of day, a significant number of our volunteers have indicated a preference for projects that take place in the evening.
TYPES OF PROJECTS:
Traditional projects enable a team of members (10 or more individuals) to be trained to volunteer together for a total of forty hours during the year. The hours may be concentrated over a week/weekend, the summer, fall or spring semesters or continue throughout the year from June to May. Traditional projects must address our current focus area, Health. Your agency can apply for one or both types of these projects.
Variety Pack projects require a minimum of three women, each contributing eight hours to plan and implement the project, preferably to be completed in one day. Minimal training and preparation would be required for this option. Projects of this nature do not have to address the current focus area, Health.
- Project should offer constructive opportunities that utilize the capabilities of the volunteers.
- Project should take place in the Greater Oklahoma City area.
- Project should strive to include at least 10 Junior League members working together.
- Project cannot involve any fundraising activities or development of fundraising activities.
- Project should have measurable outcomes.
- Project proposal should address the length of Junior League involvement and the plans for the project to continue after Junior League involvement ends.
