Who We Are

Since its founding in 1901 by social activist Mary Harriman, The Junior League has evolved into one of the oldest, largest, and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, encompassing more than 150,000 women in 292 Leagues in four countries.

The Junior League of the Lehigh Valley’s Rosalind Lucien is a stand-out volunteer with an entrepreneurial streak. Within the League she chairs the Community Impact committee while outside the League, she teaches life skills and healthy decision-making to adults and adolescents. Her most striking innovation is The Glam Squad, which combats the negative portrayal of women in the media with empowering workshops for mothers and daughters that address social media safety, healthy relationships and strong self-esteem.

What We Do

For more than a century, The Junior League has been on the forefront of social reform, identifying problems—pollution, illiteracy, domestic violence, foster children without a safety net—and finding solutions.

To instill the importance of voluntarism at an early age, The Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach created a program called Little Hands, Big Difference to involve members’ children in a project they could get their hands around.  Timed to coincide with a regional food bank’s annual food drive and skewed toward kids two to 12 years old, the initiative has provided hundreds of thousands of meals to date and inspired children to give of themselves.
