Girls empowerment movement

The Girls Empowerment Movement is a mentorship program for Bell County high school girls. Throughout their senior year, GEM participants attend a series of events and classes to prepare them for life after graduation. Topics include college and career choices, personal finance, and health and nutrition.  The program culminates with Project Prom, a special experience providing prom dresses, graduation dresses, and accessories for the events celebrating this important life stage. 

This year, JLBC will provide up to three scholarships for young women engaged in the JLBC GEM project to further their education and career development. Contact with questions.

Done In A Day (DIAD)

DIAD enables the JLBC to assist community agencies which do not have a need for League volunteers on an ongoing basis, but may have a need to staff a one or two day special event or have a one-time need for extra volunteers. DIAD projects this year have included providing volunteers to assist at the Temple Children’s Museum Under Construction Event and collecting donations for water to assist Marble Falls after devastating flooding.

Growing exceptionally qualified civic leaders starts with the JLBC New Member Class.  For the past two years, our New Member Classes worked with the Bell County Paralegal Association Adoption Day. Our New Members ensure that the children going through Child Protective Services (CPS) have a memorable day as they gain their forever families. Contact with questions


Texas Food Fight

Junior Leagues across Texas and Oklahoma compete to raise the most food for their local food bank through a Food Bank Challenge.  The annual “Texas Food Fight” only has winners, as all food raised benefits the local communities.  Look out for our next battle in March!
