Since our founding in 1901 by social activist Mary Harriman, The Junior League has embraced voluntarism as a way to raise quality of life at the community level, while setting the stage for women across our organization to lead. This National Volunteer Month offer us the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the Junior League Members who so generously give of their time, talents, and voice as volunteers to tackle society’s greatest challenges and build stronger communities. 

The Junior League would not exist without the thousands of incredible volunteers across the world who tackle the thorniest issues that face our communities. If there is a need, we are never far away. 

In celebration of National Volunteer Month, hear from Junior League Members about why they JL: 

There’s a leader waiting to be unlocked within each of us. Reach out to The Junior League to find out how you can make voluntarism a part of your life and professional development today! 

Thank you to all of the Leagues who shared their “why”! #WhyIJL
