Junior League

The Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale was organized in 1937 as the Fort Lauderdale Junior Service League to provide the community with willing volunteers in civic and child welfare work. The first project was assisting Mrs. Parson’s Day Nursery for working mothers. The Nursery is now known as Jack and Jill Children’s Center. The Junior League:

  • Has over 700 volunteer members
  • Emphasizes leadership training for members
  • Dedicates resources to projects that most positively impact families and children.
  • Promotes volunteerism and encourages community involvement beyond the Junior League
  • Is a Member of Associations of Junior League International (AJLI)
