IMPACT stands for Increase and Motivate Positive Awareness in Children and Teachers and is a one-day event developed in 2008 from a former JLTW program called “Through the Looking Glass.” Each year the event hosts a compelling speaker with the goal to motivate and inspire educators, administrators and parents.
Junior League of The Woodlands partners with local school districts and numerous private schools; inviting all staff, admission free, to learn while earning continuing education credits. In 2016, IMPACT created the Dollar$ for Districts contest, which donates $500 to the school in each district with the most attendees registered by the Friday before the event.
This year’s event will take place on Saturday, February 8, at 9:00 a.m. at The Woodlands United Methodist Church. As a special treat, each attendee will enjoy a warm cookie thanks to League Sponsor Tiff’s Treats – Research Forest. For more information, visit jlthewoodlands.org/impact.
