The Junior League of Austin

About Us

The Junior League of Austin is a diverse group of dedicated women working to make Austin a better place.  The Junior League of Austin is a non-profit organization formed in 1934 committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

  • The Junior League of Austin has more than 2,400 Active, Provisional, and Sustaining members.
  • The Junior League of Austin is part of a larger organization the Association of Junior Leagues International. The Association includes over 290 Junior Leagues throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom consisting of over 160,000 women, all striving for positive change in their communities.
  • Our membership includes business owners, working mothers, professional women and stay-at-home moms  from diverse backgrounds – and all are full-time or part-time volunteers coming from communities surrounding the Austin area.

The Junior League of Austin's members serve as trained volunteers at League Signature Impact projects and through Community Project partnerships with 29 non-profit agencies and programs throughout the Austin area. JLA volunteers support initiatives to enhance education, health and well-being, safety and crisis intervention, the arts, and the environment. Each dollar raised by The Junior League of Austin is tripled in value by our volunteers' time. In fact, this year alone we will invest more than $780,000 and 100,000 volunteer hours in improving our community.
