Junior League women make things happen — they form strategic partnerships, create innovative programs and raise funds for exciting community initiatives. So what sets Junior League volunteers apart from the rest? They are not only women who want to improve communities, they are women with the training and skills to make it happen!
Since Mary Harriman convened the very first Junior League in 1901, The Junior League’s emphasis has always been on learning. The Junior League of Racine is one of 293 chapters internationally and was the 18th Junior League, established October 17, 1916. Members benefit from extensive training in leadership and organizational development, community needs assessment, strategic planning, communications, advocacy and fundraising. Active members gain leadership skills through committee experience, hands‐on community projects, fundraising and organizational management. Through this unique training, League members learn to manage and train volunteers, unite our community, and forge partnerships.
The Junior League is an educational and charitable organization of women whose purpose is to promote voluntarism and to improve the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
