International Find The Good Day

Thursday, September 14, 2023

The Junior League of Northern Virginia is participating in Find the Good Day, a celebration of compassion, community, and positive change! Join us in embracing the spirit of kindness and empowerment as we commemorate this special occasion that echoes the core values of the Junior Leagues across the world.

The history of Junior Leagues dates back to the late 19th century when visionary women recognized the need for organized efforts to address pressing social issues. Inspired by a shared commitment to effect positive change, they established the first Junior League in New York City in 1901. Over the years, Junior Leagues have proliferated across the United States and beyond, becoming a transformative force for good.

At the heart of every Junior League lies a profound dedication to empowering women to become catalysts for change. Through training, mentorship, and hands-on experience, Junior League members evolve into confident leaders who drive meaningful transformations in their communities.

Find the Good Day is not just a date on the calendar; it’s a movement that reflects the timeless spirit of Junior Leagues – a legacy of kindness, empowerment, and community transformation. Together, we aim to make a difference by embracing the power of unity and positive change.

As we commemorate this extraordinary occasion, we extend an open invitation to all passionate individuals who wish to be a part of this impactful movement. Whether you’re an experienced advocate or a budding philanthropist, there’s a place for you in the Junior Leagues.

Join hands with us on Find the Good Day, and let’s create a legacy of compassion and positivity that will resonate for generations to come. Together, we can find the good in every day and make a real difference in the lives of others.

Celebrate Find the Good Day with us, and together, let’s continue the inspiring journey that began over a century ago, leaving a legacy of compassion for generations to come.
