What Does Being A Member Of The Junior League Look Like?

We’re a friendly group of women from a varied background of professions, industries, and passions. One of the things we all have in common is the desire to empower girls and other women in our community through volunteerism, partnerships, training and other programs.

The JLS reaches out to all women age 21 and older regardless of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin who possess an interest in and a commitment to voluntarism, to join our League. We offer two classes a year, January and August.

Our mission: The Junior League of Sacramento 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. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

The JLS is previously focused on the issue of nutrition – increasing access to healthy food sources and increasing awareness on sustaining healthy food choices. Our current focus is on Empowering Girls, teaching them to be confident leaders through programming centered on self-esteem, character development, and educational achievement.

Here’s a brief list of membership benefits:

  • You can actually make a difference in the community volunteering in our many on-going programs and events.
  • Contribute meaningfully and utilize your unique skill-set to make Sacramento a better place to live and work.
  • Each year we provide every member access to $2,700 worth of professional development trainings.
  • Make and develop some of the best friendships you’ll ever have.
