The Junior League of Austin (JLA) proudly supports the efforts of our Done-In-A-Day partners with volunteer support for community events.

Application Process for 2023-2024 Projects

Done-In-A-Day is a series of concentrated projects that provide assistance to non-profit agencies by offering volunteers from JLA for community-based events on a short-term basis. Unlike our Community Partners program, which places volunteers for a 9-12 month window, Done-In-A-Day volunteers commit their time to event-based and one-time volunteering opportunities such as picnics, food bank distribution, holiday parties, egg hunts, 10K water distribution, and more. Volunteers can even support organizations at fundraising events as long as they do not solicit funds or goods.

Volunteer placements are scheduled in four-hour shifts over a typical time span of half-a-day, one-day or two-day periods.

Applicants are encouraged to make multiple requests throughout each application cycle and the year. For each shift and/or project, please submit a separate application.

For more information and to review application requirements, consult our Done-In-A-Day Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

The following application deadlines apply for the 2023-2024 year:

  • FALL Cycle: Applications due June 30, 2023 for projects running September 1, 2023 through November 30, 2023
