Danish and the AJLI Board and Staff, over the course of several years of research and analysis, had discovered a troubling trend. Junior League membership, since peaking at just under 200,000 in the late 1990s, had been in gradual decline for more than a decade.
Loaded with important history, profiles of inspiring women, and compelling coverage of significant accomplishments with great relevance to The Junior League of today (and an occasional bit of juicy trivia), the titles are increasingly tough to get your hands on, so we decided to serialize them, chapter by chapter, here on connected to make them more accessible to members.
So in a perfect world, Junior Leagues wouldn’t have back-to-school programs because every kid would have parents who can buy a backpack’s worth of school supplies.
But this isn’t a perfect world.
