President's Message


Welcome! Thank you for visiting the Junior League of Atlanta’s website. For 99 years, our BRAVE, BOLD members have made BIG changes in Atlanta.

Founded in 1916 with 45 members, today, our 3,300 members donate over 75,000 volunteer hours to improve the health, education and welfare of women and children in Atlanta. From opening the doors at the Junior League School of Speech Correction in 1938 (now the Atlanta Speech School) to our 70th anniversary project, The Atlanta Children’s Shelter, we have been agents of change in our community.

As we look toward our next century of service, I invite you to learn more about our work in early childhood education, commercial sexual exploitation of women and children/human trafficking, and generational poverty. These are complex issues that will take all of us working together to make an impact.

I challenge you to step forward and help the next generation of women leaders ask the hard questions. You can do that by becoming a member, supporting our fundraisers, or applying to be a partner agency. Big change happens when we’re brave and bold.
