President’s Message

A Message from the President of the Junior League of Greater Orlando:

Welcome to the Junior League of Greater Orlando!  We are an organization of women dedicated to creating lasting community change for over 70 years.

Our mission is to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women and improve our community through trained volunteers.  For the 2017-18 League Year, we have a ton of exciting happenings for our members and community alike!

The League serves our community through programs, advocacy, and training women leaders. League programs currently focus on serving children through HIP Kids Events at the Rock Lake Community Center and girls in the juvenile justice system through MAGIC.  Our League advocates at a state level by joining forces with other Junior Leagues and recent success includes the elimination of the “Tampon Tax”.  We also help other nonprofits by providing volunteers to help with their efforts.

In February of 2018, the Junior League of Greater Orlando will host the Association of Junior Leagues International women’s Organizational Development Institute conference in February.  Bringing talented women in from all over the USA, Canada, Great Britain and Mexico, Junior Leagues work together to train and develop members to be civic leaders.

Every day, we work together to help our members develop their potential as leaders through experiential learning, educational forums and programming and volunteer opportunities.  Come and join us at our fundraisers, as a member or as a community organization.  We look forward to working with you!
