Welcome to the Junior League of Jackson!
We are a mission driven, member focused organization of women united by our interest in building better communities and cultivating the next generation of women as community and civic leaders. We offer unique opportunities for personal growth through comprehensive leadership development and training, community service, and lifelong friendships and connections. We thrive through our membership’s diverse backgrounds, interests, and experiences.
During our seventy-nine year legacy of collaborating with non-profit partners in the Jackson metropolitan area, the Junior League of Jackson has addressed urgent community needs through meaningful programs and initiatives. Our well-trained volunteers support local community partners through coalition building, innovative service opportunities, and signature direct service programs. Our focus areas include early literacy, children’s health and social development. With more than 30 initiatives focusing on children and youth, our League pours into and supports our community because we know that together, we are stronger.
These initiatives are possible through the hard work of our volunteers in planning and hosting three large fundraising events each year, as well as through the generous support of our corporate sponsors. In the fall, the League will host the 39th annual Mistletoe Marketplace. This year’s event promises to continue the wonderful tradition of kicking off the holiday season and providing unique shopping and entertainment experiences. Our 6th annual Junior League Jumble, held in early 2020, is another opportunity to find a bargain at what has become known as the ultimate rummage sale. The 7th annual Touch A Truck® Jackson will roll into town again in 2020 and is sure to be a “wheelie good time” for children and families.
I encourage you to learn more about the Junior League of Jackson by exploring our website. Whether you choose to make a donation, become a community partner, learn more about our fund development businesses or express interest in joining our membership, your support of our mission will ensure that we continue to deepen our impact and transform our volunteers into civic leaders. Together, we will unlock the infinite possibilities that abound!
With warmest regards,
