The Junior League of Northern Virginia, Inc. (JLNV) is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
Empowering women to be a driving force to improve our community.
Childhood obesity has broad health consequences for children and families, and affects 1 in 5 children in Northern Virginia. The JLNV prepares children for success by addressing childhood obesity through the promotion of nutrition and physical activity education, which is proven to enrich health, well-being, and academic outcomes. The JLNV is committed to reducing the number of impacted children by empowering families to make healthier choices.
More than 400 women in the Northern Virginia area are members of the JLNV. The women share a common desire to drive positive change in the community. In alignment with our mission, the League provides members with training and skills that will enrich their professional and personal lives. Training opportunities include leadership development seminars, workshops, project management opportunities, and “hands-on” experience. Throughout our history, the JLNV has provided over 20,000 service hours toward JLNV programs and initiatives, 800 hours in leadership training, and more than $2.4 million in financial support to the community.
