Community Focus and Volunteer Opportunities
The Junior League of Northern Virginia (JLNV) is dedicated to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our members are actively engaged in our focus area: preparing children for success by addressing childhood obesity through nutrition and physical activity education, which supports a healthy lifestyle, improved academic outcomes, and overall well-being.
Our community initiatives focus on:
Training women to become community leaders is in our DNA. Ever since 1901 when Junior League founder, Mary Harriman, taught her friends how to work with tenement families on the Lower East Side, our organization has been committed to developing leadership skills. Today our volunteers learn through a variety of innovative, hands-on training programs, leadership development training, and activities.
Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
The Junior League welcomes all women who value our mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations, and communities.
