Education Task Force


The Education Task Force of the Monroe Junior League provides many opportunities for the community.  Each year the committee awards mini-grants to area teachers in the amount of $500 per grant.  In addition to the mini-grants, the Education Task Force Committee will also fund ACT workshops for qualifying high school seniors. We are thankful for the support provided by League fund-raisers, particularly the Spring Market which generates more dollars for our community projects.
