Since 1923, the Junior League of Seattle has been making an impact in the Seattle community. Below are a few examples of our programs:
This committee works on directing the advocacy efforts of the JLS, and ensures that members are mobilized and trained to approach their legislators and advocate for issues of importance in the League's focus areas.
Hands-on, short-term projects are planned and implemented on a monthly basis to benefit organizations in the greater Seattle area in need of assistance.
E.N.E.R.G.Y: Exercise and Nutrition to Empower our Region’s Growing Youth
E.N.E.R.G.Y.’s goals are to educate and help children (and their parents) to improve their health and wellness.
Healthy Futures Art Project
This project helps children and adolescents, ages 6 to 18, suffering from severe mental disorders, personality disorders, and clinical depression.
Kids in the Kitchen
Our Kids in the Kitchen program teaches children how to make healthy food choices and prepare nutrious, delicious meals.
This project, the newest for the JLS is an exciting opportunity to positively impact young women at a critical time in their lives. Our members develop and implement a meaningful curriculum which provides life skills education to girls in our state's foster care system.
The committee annually introduces over 10,000 elementary school children, the community, and JLS members to the rich production of Northwest artists in the highly respected art collection under the care of the JLS.
