Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce Foundation
Our Mission: The mission of the Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce is to enrich the lives of young professionals in the greater Los Angeles area and to develop strong corporate, civic and nonprofit leaders through professional growth, leadership development, personal enrichment and community involvement. Membership is comprised of professionals who gain hands-on experience by planning and implementing LAJCC programs and projects. Qualified members can sit on the Board of Directors and govern an organization with a $7 million annual budget. Member benefits include monthly receptions and mixers which feature timely discussions by prominent LA citizens. Past speakers have included Secretary of State Bruce McPherson, representatives from Korn/Ferry, and Chris Thornberg from Beacon Economics. Interested members can participate in the Riordan Volunteer Leadership Development Program, which trains for service in nonprofit board governance. LAJCC programs serve 15,000 youth annually and provide athletic, arts and educational opportunities which encourage integrity and self-esteem. Sports programs include: L.A. Watts Summer Games, Safe Passage Tennis Program, and Urban Youth Golf Program. Community service projects include: Ready To Learn Literacy Project, Foster Family Picnic, and Children?s Hospital Art Project. The LAJCC Foundation supports youth seeking higher education and awards more than $50,000 in scholarships annually. For 82 years, the LAJCC has provided opportunities for individuals to address the needs of the Greater Los Angeles Area through a spirit of teamwork and togetherness.
The SCGA Foundation is the charitable arm of the Southern California Golf Association. Our mission is to sponsor the education and character development of Southern California youth. We accomplish our mission through the following goals: create affordable access to the game; instill integrity, character, and responsibility in youth through golf; and provide educational opportunities for youth through the game.
