About JLA

The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) is an organization of women, committed to making lasting transformation in the Atlanta community.  Our 100 year legacy of leadership is built on our ability to train women leaders to tackle tough issues impacting women and children.  The JLA provides a strong foundation for civic leadership and also connects women who share a commitment to voluntarism and community transformation.



In 1916, with the leadership of Isoline Campbell, 45 women came together to establish The JLA. The purpose was to train women to build better, stronger communities in the Atlanta area. For 100 years, the League has grown our membership and involvement in the community. Our organization of diverse women continues to support a wide variety of programs that support women and children at risk and make Atlanta a better community.

The JLA reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.
