The Junior League of Edmonton gratefully acknowledges the generous support of IBM in helping us build a better community.
The Junior League movement began in New York City in 1901 with a group of young women who organized to work in settlement houses on the Lower East Side to improve child health, nutrition and literacy. Today, there are 294 Leagues with a combined membership of more than 171,000 women serving communities in Canada, Great Britain, Mexico and the United States.
The Junior League of Edmonton began as the Junior Hospital League in 1928 and joined the Association of Junior Leagues International and the Canadian Federation of Junior Leagues in 1959.
Governed by a nine-member board of directors, the Junior League of Edmonton currently has more than 175 active and sustaining members. Most active members elect to serve on one of two teams—the Fund Development Team or the Program Team. Each team is led by a director who serves on the board of directors and is responsible for supervising the activities of the members under her. Each team also includes a placement and a training representative, who report to the human resources director, and a public relations representative, who reports to the public relations director.
Are you an energetic woman who is interested in bettering your community in a volunteer capacity? Are you looking to become part of a group of like-minded women? Then come and join our team. For more information on membership in the Junior League of Edmonton, please contact u
