President's NoteWelcome to the Junior League of Dallas. Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about the League.
The Junior League of Dallas is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Since our founding in 1922, members of the JLD have been dedicated to affecting positive change in the Dallas community and committed to the belief that volunteer service is an essential part of responsible citizenship.
By staying true to our mission, the Junior League of Dallas stands at the forefront of lasting and positive change in Dallas. Each year, the women of the JLD provide more than 130,000 uncompensated volunteer hours, worth more than $3 million dollars. When combined with the $1 million donated, the JLD gives over $4 million to the Dallas community each year. With over 5,000 members, all those seconds, minutes and hours the JLD provides add up to have a great impact on our city.
The Junior League of Dallas is committed equally to providing resources to better our community and developing the leaders, visionaries and change agents of tomorrow. Our Active and Sustaining members continue to implement their JLD leadership training by serving on numerous community boards and coalitions as well as lead businesses, nonprofits, and civic organizations.
The Junior League of Dallas embraces diverse perspectives, builds partnerships and inspires shared solutions. Our members make a difference in six areas that are essential to the development and growth of our city: arts and cultural enrichment, education, family preservation, health, poverty intervention and violence intervention. We can be found rocking babies, building homes, enriching children’s lives, visiting with seniors, feeding the hungry, teaching art, and helping in just about every area possible in the Dallas community.
Join us as we continue to develop leaders in our community whose impact makes a lasting difference.
