Join the Junior League of Seattle

Thank you for your interest in joining the Junior League of Seattle.

Membership in the Junior League of Seattle is open to women ages 18 and older who express an interest in voluntarism.


Why Join?

What sets Junior League volunteers apart from the rest? Junior League women make things happen -- they form strategic partnerships, create innovative programs and raise funds for exciting community initiatives.

Since Mary Harriman convened the very first Junior League in 1901, The Junior League's focus has been on empowering women. Members benefit from extensive training in leadership and organizational development, community needs assessment, strategic planning, communications, advocacy and fundraising. Through this unique leadership training, League members learn to manage and train volunteers, unite communities and form partnerships. The Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) organizes regular conferences inviting all 292 Leagues to create opportunities for networking, collaboration and shared learning.

The Junior League of Seattle (JLS) is comprised of women from around the greater Puget Sound Region committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective leadership of trained volunteers.
