Community Engagement

Outreach & Education

One of our goals as a Fair Trade organization is to educate the public about the importance of Fair Trade. Our Education Coordinator is available to give presentations to community groups, do educational booths at community events, and provide in-store tours. For more information, you may view the Outreach and Education brochure. To schedule a presentation or request a booth at a community event, please contact the store at

Fair Trade Ambassador Program

For several months during the school year, Ambassadors are immersed in the triumphs and challenges of Fair Trade. They meet monthly to learn; volunteer in the store; and share what they are learning at their respective schools. Throughout its history, this program has touched the minds and hearts of over 70 participants. We hope that what our Ambassadors learn and experience at Just Creations will spark a passion for social and economic justice and a life-long commitment to Fair Trade! Click here to learn more.



Our Fair Trade Ambassador Program, started in 2007, provides experiential education in Fair Trade to selected high school students. Our hope is that they will develop an enduring commitment to Fair Trade and its principles, and in turn educate their peers.

A group of juniors is selected each fall from area high schools. The students volunteer in the store, attend coursework sessions on Fair Trade topics, give a presentation at their school, and at the end of the program, go on a trip to visit other Fair Trade organizations in the region.

According to one of our Ambassadors after she completed the program, “The experience has been the most valuable of my high school years for it has shaped the person I wish to become.”

This program received the 2010 Best Public Education Program award from the Fair Trade Federation!

Llama League

In 2017, Just Creations introduced the Llama League, the Club for Kids grades K-5. With Louie the Llama as its mascot, the Llama League offers opportunities for children and their families to engage in activities at Just Creations, learn about Fair Trade, and connect with cultures around the world. Highlights of the first year included a Birthday Club; tie-dying, blockprinting, and quilting at our Textiles of the World event; and the Llamarama, a special holiday shopping event just for kids.

2020 Events:

Llamarama 2020

Due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the community, we are unable to host our traditional Llamarama. Instead of a one-day shopping event for kids, we are offering families the opportunity to make an appointment with our elves for a special shopping time for their children.
Elves will be available on:
Saturday, December 5, from 12-4 p.m.
Sunday, December 6, from 1-4 p.m.
Saturday, December 12, from 12-4 p.m.
Sunday, December 13, from 1-4 p.m.
Please call the store at (502) 897-7319 or email us to make a reservation.

You provide the shopping list and budget; the shopping elves and child do the rest!

The Llamarama is for children 13 years old and younger.

Volunteer Opportunities

Just Creations relies on volunteers to assist with the daily operations of the store including unpacking, pricing and stocking merchandise, as well as providing quality customer service. We ask that volunteers work a minimum of 4-8 hours a month, and attend a New Volunteer Orientation before starting. The minimum age to volunteer is 16.

Volunteering at Just Creations provides an opportunity to make a difference around the world without leaving home!
