About the Junior League of Seattle

The Junior League of Seattle is an organization of nearly 1,300 women who are committed to promoting voluntarism and to improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers since 1923.

Annually our members donate over 45,000 volunteer hours and participate in over 5,000 hours of personal and professional development. Our programs focus on promoting the well-being of women, children, and families throughout the greater Seattle community by addressing issues of food security, children’s literacy, and career skills for women.

Throughout its nearly 100-year history, JLS has successfully met the emerging needs of the community by initiating cutting edge programs and providing trained volunteers to manage and direct service projects, community education, fundraising and advocacy efforts. As a result of League training, JLS has also provided a legacy of leaders who bring knowledge and experience to the community in which they serve.
