President’s Message

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

Thank you for your interest in the Junior League of Greater Orlando (JLGO)! For over 70 years, we have trained women leaders to create lasting community change. Our mission is to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women and improve our community through trained volunteers.

Each year, the over 500 members who comprise the JLGO explore the potential of what is possible in the year ahead. We spend each summer onboarding our newest leadership team, welcoming new members, and preparing for a year of community impact and member development.

Our members serve the community through programs, advocacy, and training women to become leaders who in turn create more leaders. The JLGO programs currently focus on serving children through HIP Kids Events at the Rock Lake Community Center and youth 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 support other local nonprofits, such as Harbor House, Arnold Palmer Child Life, Girls on the Run, and Samaritan Village, by providing volunteers to help with their efforts.

As a result of League service, members learn more about community issues, gain confidence and civic leadership experience, and share experiences with friends along the way. Join our movement by attending our fundraisers, becoming a member, or working alongside us as a community partner. Together we rise!
