Girl Power Program Receives National Award

The Junior League of Tyler’s Girl Power program has received the Golden Achievement Award from the National School Public Relations Association based on its work with Tyler Independent School District.  The award was announced in June 2013, and it is designed as a major recognition program for great activities that meet specific criteria in the areas of research, analysis, implementation, and evaluation of a program needed within a community. 

Girl Power is a project initiated by the Junior League of Tyler, Inc. to develop the leadership skills of 6th grade girls in our community by promoting self-esteem and confidence; health and nutrition, and a spirit of volunteerism after doing intensive research to determine that middle school girls were at a most impressionable time of their lives.  Multiple events are held throughout the year targeted to this age group and issues they face on a daily basis to give them the tools to make good choices now and in years to come.

Our Mission

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

Our Community Impact

For over 18 years, the Junior League of Tyler has offered Summer Reading Camp to students entering the third grade at various TISD schools. Campers participate in crazy-fun sessions in Writing, Reading, Art and, our new favorite session, Community.  Watching them participate in community projects that benefit other non profits is worth a visit to camp!  Each camper goes home with at least 20 new books, encouragement to try their hardest in school and most importantly an excitement about reading!  The Junior League of Tyler believes an excited reader becomes a strong reader, and a strong reader becomes a life-long learner.   Join our team of 20+ volunteers June 24th - 28th for a great time at camp!
