President's Message

Welcome to the Junior League of Phoenix! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the League and our mission!

The Junior League of Phoenix is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Since our International founding in 1901, members of Junior League have been dedicated to affecting positive change all over the world, as they are committed to the belief that volunteer service is an essential part of responsible citizenship.

With more than 80 years in the Valley of the Sun, the Junior League of Phoenix (JLP) stands at the forefront of lasting and positive change in Phoenix. Each year, more than 1,100 women of the JLP contribute more than 6,000 hours of volunteer service to the Greater Phoenix community, adding up to enormous impact on our city.

In addition to our mission, the Junior League of Phoenix also has a specific focus area, Building A Healthy Arizona. Every person in Phoenix should have access to healthy food and to the information that can help them improve the health of their families. The Junior League of Phoenix intends to “Build a Healthy Arizona” in a two pronged way, with programs addressing food insecurity/food access, and programs addressing nutrition and obesity. For this very important issue facing our community, we already have a Nationally Awarded Program called Kids in the Kitchen, email me to find out more!

We are fortunate to have a passionate and diverse membership of women and we are proud to be part of their development in becoming leaders, visionaries and change agents of tomorrow. Our Active and Sustaining members continue to implement their JLP leadership training by serving on numerous community boards and coalitions as well as lead businesses, nonprofits and civic organizations.

The Junior League of Phoenix embraces diverse perspectives, builds partnerships and inspires shared solutions. Our members make a difference in areas that are essential to the development and growth of our community. You can find our members enriching children’s lives, connecting with seniors, feeding the hungry, teaching life skills and helping in just about every area possible in the Phoenix community.

Please join us as we continue to develop leaders that make a difference in the Phoenix community and beyond!
