Current Projects


The Junior League of Pelham is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

Our 2020-2021 projects include:

Backpack

We provide 25 of the neediest families who attend the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle with totes full of healthy food to sustain them over a weekend on a monthly basis.

Ending Hunger

Through partnerships with various community-based organizations, JLP organizes food drives, purchases and delivers groceries for individual families, and prepares large batch meals for local soup kitchens.

Pelham Cares

This project was born out of the pandemic when there was sudden and immediate need. Connecting with local social services and other community-based organizations, we identify families and provide assistance.

Professional Prep

This project was founded with the intent to provide mentorship, resume assistance and other services to individuals entering or re-entering the work force. It also provides programming for young people exploring careers.

Junior League of Scientists

Through this initiative, our members teach STEAM-oriented concepts through fun projects to young children.

DIAN/DIAD (Done In A Night / Done In A Day)

DIAD provides flexible volunteer opportunities for JLP members while assisting local organizations in need of volunteer support.
