The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula is investing in our next generation of female STEAM leaders through strategic grant-making, coalition building and by partnering with local and national nonprofits on projects for direct service, capacity building and advocacy. We are excited to continue our multi-year partnership with The Tech Museum of Innovation and announce a new partnership with Project READ at the Redwood City Public Library.
