President’s Welcome

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Junior League of the Lehigh Valley!  I am honored to serve as the first African-American President of the Junior League of the Lehigh Valley for the 2019-2020 league year.  I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our organization.

The Junior League of the Lehigh Valley is a non-profit organization of more than 150 civic-minded women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  We are also part of a powerful network of 292 Junior Leagues with over 150,000 members in four countries who share our mission. Collectively, we constitute one of the largest, most effective volunteer organizations in the world.

As our league enters its 77th year of service, we remain committed to serving at-risk women and children in Northampton and Lehigh Counties through our member-led community programming and strong partnerships in our community.

Thank you for your interest in our mission and our organization.  Help us improve the greater Lehigh Valley community. As a 501©3 organization, we rely on your support to fulfill our missions.  You can help us with a gift to the Annual Fund, a Cornerstone Partnership or by supporting and or attending our signature Party with Purpose fundraiser.

Are you interested in helping us by becoming a member? If you are a woman looking to develop or improve your leadership skills, make a positive impact in your community and have fun with remarkable women while doing so, the Junior League is for you.  We would love to hear from you.
