The JLL Summer Contribution

Our teen volunteer program and our larger programs exist because of generous financial support from individuals and families such as yours. We suggest a $500 contribution for our volunteering opportunities this summer. Families making a contribution of at least $750 to support the Readers to Leaders program are exempt from this contribution for any number of teen participants. 

Your contribution not only sustains the program, but truly shows a familial commitment to healing the world and making a difference. We encourage our JLLs and their families to view this contribution as an opportunity to live important values, such as generosity, commitment to community and authentic relationship building. With that being said, we do not want financial hardship to be a limiting factor for any teen or family. Please reach out to the Program Coordinator at so that we can make an arrangement that is suitable to your family.
