One of the key ways the Junior League of Seattle makes a difference in the community is through its unparalleled leadership training and its community activities. Funds raised support JLS operations, trainings and community activities, and enables the JLS to contribute to other nonprofits in the region by providing leadership and volunteer efforts that support the JLS' mission.
The JLS is an organization of women committed to:
- Promoting voluntarism
- Developing the potential of women
- Improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
