We are volunteers, physicians, lawyers, therapists, teachers, homemakers, engineers, nurses; young, not so young, married, single, moms, and so much more. We are a group of intelligent women committed to helping our community. We are the Junior League of Albany, GA, Inc and we are proud members of The Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI).
The Junior League, one of the oldest, largest and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, has matured and evolved since it was founded by social activism pioneer Mary Harriman in 1901.
True to their legacy, today’s League members are at the forefront of tackling society’s thorniest issues—addressing and acting as advocates on an array of critical issues including human trafficking, foster care, juvenile justice, teen self-esteem, cybercrimes, literacy and the environment, among others—for the express purpose of enhancing the social, cultural and political fabric of our society.
Our commitment, has remained unwavering: to develop exceptionally qualified civic leaders who can identify a community’s most urgent and pressing needs and address them with meaningful and relevant programs and initiatives that not only improve lives, but change the way people think.
The Junior League—the 150,000 women empowered to lead in 291 Leagues in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Mexico—have amassed an archive of irrefutable results and an undisputed reputation as thoughtful and influential change agents for the public good. Our organization has been instrumental in championing education and literacy programs, children’s cultural development, school nutrition, vaccination, the Clean Water Act, and heightened awareness around domestic violence and alcohol abuse.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
We are an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
