About Us

Established in 1926, the Junior League of Los Angeles (JLLA) has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live. Throughout its history, JLLA has developed, supported and launched more than 100 projects into the community -- making a measurable, positive impact on the welfare of greater Los Angeles children and their families. More than 2,500 kids were impacted by JLLA programs during its 2012-2013 year alone.

Junior League members, reflecting a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and professional pursuits work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions, and work for change. Time and time again, the Junior League is among the first organizations to step up to the plate and tackle a community’s biggest challenges.

The Junior League of Los Angeles is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit volunteer organization, and is a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI). The JLLA is now one of over 293 Junior Leagues throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Great Britain. AJLI’s member leagues encompass over 155,000 members worldwide.
