JLHB 'Empower Hour'
'Empower Hour' is an educational 10 week series of workshops and activities, launched as a pilot program by the JLHB in the spring of 2010, in partnership with the Good Shepherd Brennan House in Hamilton. Now adopted as a ongoing program of the JLHB, 'Empower Hour, opens the doors of success for young women living in poverty, by building self-esteem, confidence and the desire to succeed. 

 "The Empower Hour of the Junior League inspires women with the courage to break free from the chains of limitations and gives the young women the tools to see their true beauty and power. This is done through offering self help tools, self discovery, information, encouragement and inspiration as a guide on the journey of reclaiming their power as young women that may have been hindered by challenging life circumstances. The young women at Good Shepherd Brennan House are encouraged to see and bring forth the beauty and strength from within themselves and are inspired to be the best they can be." Loretta Hill-Finamore, Director Good Shepherd Youth Services.

Junior Leagues' Kids in the Kitchen
Kids in the Kitchen builds upon a heritage of impact Junior Leagues have had on family nutrition for the past 108 years. Spearheaded by the Association of Junior Leagues International, Kids in the Kitchen is a unique, grassroots approach to educate children and their families on the importance of healthy eating, proper nutrition and regular physical activity, empowering them to adopt healthy behaviors. As kids are more likely to eat meals they have hand in preparing, Kids in the Kitchen involves children in the preparation of meals that are tasty and affordable, by making it fun and giving them tasks they can handle.Childhood obesity is a global health issue that has grown at an astounding rate.  One in four Canadian children is overweight. Obese children are more likely to have longer-ranging health impacts such as high blood pressure, raised cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, asthma attacks and kidney problems. Overweight and obesity are also associated with poor self-esteem and depression. Read more about what the JLHB is doing.

New, warm winter coats help area youth.
Fifty new winter coats, in a variety of youth sizes, were distributed in our community to help ensure that everyone who needs a coat has one. These coats have been supplied as a result of a JLHB partnership with One Warm Coat, a not for profit organization that enables other organizations, like the JLHB, to provide coats for free, to people in need. This year the coats were distributed to Living Rock, Hamilton.
