The AISD Back to School Kickoff started in 2008 as a fair serving 3 elementary schools and has grown to provide supplies and resources to thousands of students each year at AT&T Stadium. Students can receive backpacks, immunizations, vision screenings, eye glass fittings and parents can get information on after school care. JLA coordinates the hundreds of volunteers that it takes to pull off this huge event. We also have many of our members serving at this needed event that sets our children up for success!
JLA’s Glass Slipper Boutique has been providing formals to young ladies in families currently facing hardship since 2008. It is important to note that 1 in 5 teens lives in poverty or in a low income household. Through the GSB they are able to find a dress, accessories and shoes needed to attend their prom. Safe dating information is also provided. JLA has provided over 800 gowns and transforms the Center into a beautiful boutique to make the experience truly memorable. Through the donations of our sponsors and community, this exciting event provides young ladies the opportunity to attend an important high school event and to feel confident and glamorous!
