In 294 communities throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Great Britain, the Junior League has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make communities healthier, more vital places to live: childhood immunization, family literacy, women's shelters, children?s museums, historic preservation, leadership development, and more.
More than 171,000 Junior League members - reflecting a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and professional pursuits - work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions, and work for change.
Mission - The Junior Leagues are organizations of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Their purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior Leagues reach out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.
