For more than a century, Junior League members have confronted society’s most pressing issues and tackled its toughest problems, leaving a legacy of reform like no other.
But in a complex world, accelerating and advancing at a rapid pace, change is uncomfortable, conflicts are inevitable and challenges are cyclical. Problems loom large. Leadership talent and funding are scarce.
To fight these battles, find solutions, and advocate for those in need, a renewable army of women empowered as agents of positive change is essential.
Preparing women to serve their communities is The Junior League’s mission. Because tomorrow there will be new issues and new challenges—and the women of The Junior League will continue to serve as the undeterred voices for action, justice and change.
The Junior League of Phoenix is a network of empowered female civic leaders working with community partners to address and solve pressing issues like food insecurity/food access and nutrition and obesity. We’re part of an international network of 291 Leagues comprised of over 150,000 women, in Canada, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S., engaged in similar work in their own communities. This provides us with a unique and powerful depth of knowledge and resourcefulness to bring about the changes we strive to accomplish.
