Community Impact: We're Reaching Out!






Kids in the Kitchen

The JLPSDC helps to empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and help reverse the growth of childhood obesity in our community. Since 2018, The Junior League of Palm Springs Desert Communities has partnered with the Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert to bring Kids in the Kitchen to our local communty. In it's first year, F10 Creative joined us to offer live cooking classes for children and their parents. 

Among many other great tips and recipes, Tara Lazar of F-10 Creative emphasized the use of orange juice to sweeten plain yogurt 

and gave us all a delectable recipe for her Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing! 

In 2019, Chef Porter Brooks joined us in the Kitchen and had a blast teaching kids of all ages to make their very own mini fritatas. By using muffin pans, the kids mixed their eggs, veggies and cheese and poured them into the individual serving sized containers. 

It was overheard after the cooking class more than once that kids would be making these for their families after school!

A heartfelt Thank You goes out to our community partner Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert who brings 

interactive and educational exhibits to our community all year round!




Day of Empowerment with The Boys and Girls Club of Coachella Valley

Several years ago, Abbey Newell, an active member of Junior League of Palm Springs Desert Communities envisioned and created a one-day skills and training workshop offered to girls from the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Coachella Valley.

Emphasizing providing a worthwhile day full of classes from mindfulness and meditation, makeup and manners, financial planning, communication, nutrition, self defense and more. The event is held annually at the Boys and Girls Club of Mecca where primarily teen-aged girls from each of the associated clubs join together for the day to experience a Day of Empowerment together. 



SafeHouse of the Desert

So proud of our Junior League who helped build this school! SafeHouse of the Desert is Coachella Valley's only 24/7 shelter for youth in crisis. SafeHouse of the Desert is a non-profit helping runaways, throwaways, and victims of human trafficking. Teens who don’t know where else to go are always welcome —all they have to do is show up. The Association of Junior League International is taking a stand to End Human Trafficking. For more information about the Human Trafficking Advocacy, check out this link on the AJLI website.
