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 291 Leagues in four countries.

The life of Betty Shuter Oland, a long-time member of the Junior League of Halifax, reminds us that service in our nations’ wars comes in many forms.

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.

It’s hard to remember now, but it was only recently that human trafficking – which is a growing global problem of enormous scale – was something that most people simply didn’t talk about. 

For The Junior League as a whole as well as many individual Leagues and SPACs, the fight against human trafficking in our communities is an important one.
