Trip Around the JLC

In honor of Founder’s Day, we are introducing a new Member Experience Program to enable each member to make an impact in the community, meet other members, and get engaged in new and different parts of the League.

Have you ever heard someone (or yourself) say…

  • I don’t really know what Advocacy does.
  • I only know people on my Community committee.
  • I want to get involved in other parts of the League but don’t know how to.

Well, let’s take a tour of everything the JLC has to offer!

During the 21 days from today through Giving Tuesday (12/1) we encourage you to plan and take your own tour of the JLC by participating in events and activities across the League.

Choose your own adventure by completing one event or activity to earn your Passport Stamp for each highlighted Council.

How does it work?

  • Donate, participate, and attend events
  • Give yourself a stamp for each activity 
  • Document your participation and share on social media (don’t forget to tag us and use #jlchicago)
  • Send your final passport and photo documentation to JLCactivemember@gmail.com

 

Members who receive all five passport stamps will not only receive one elective credit (in addition to the elective and fundraising credits received for individual activities) but also new membership connections and feel-good vibes from helping out the City of Chicago.

 

Advocacy

Each day has a small advocacy activity option members can complete as part of the challenge.
