Dedicated to providing volunteer services throughout Arizona, the Junior League of Phoenix strives to positively impact the lives of families and individuals every day with nearly 1,000 members from the valley. Their mission is to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improving the community through effective action and leadership.
Part of this focus includes building a healthy Arizona, with programs to address food insecurity/food access and those to address nutrition and obesity. For over 80 years, JLP volunteers have positively impacted the Phoenix area, by participating and bringing awareness to programs like:
Race for the Cure Phoenix
Ronald McDonald House
Emily Anderson Center
Children’s Museum of Phoenix
Kids in the Kitchen
Volunteers continue to make an impact on the community through the JLP Community Impact projects, investing their time supporting organizations such as:
St. Vincent de Paul
Desert Botanical Garden
The JLP has such an impact on their staff, volunteers, and community that former Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O’Connor stated, “when the Junior League of Phoenix gets behind an idea, Phoenix changes for the better.”
