The Junior League is a unique organization for many reasons, one of which is that you are provided with opportunities to try new challenges and to build new skills—opportunities you may not get in your place of employment or in your everyday.

“The League enabled me to try out different things in a non-threatening environment.”

Women come to us from all walks of life and in various life stages so whether you’re an empty-nester, recent college grad or a new mom, there is a place for you in the League if our mission resonates with you.

“I developed an entire career of out my League experience … My volunteer work for the League was like getting a master’s degree in nonprofit management.”

Whether your primary motivator is to build a skill, give back with the skills you already possess or a combination of both, there are opportunities for you to accomplish those goals through your League involvement – while making friends along the way.

  • Attend trainings
  • Connect to the community
  • Meet like-minded women
  • Develop civic leadership skills
  • Collaborate with a mentor
  • Attend social events
  • Have fun!
