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.

Upon joining The Junior League of Scranton, 2015 Rising Star winner Margaret Nasser helped develop KNOWME, a program that tackles the perils of bullying and low self-esteem among at-risk teen girls through immersion in the arts. In an offshoot to that work, she chaired JLS’ Cinderella’s Closet initiative, which provides underprivileged girls with the opportunity to find prom dresses and accessories for under $10.

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.

Propelled both by the National Diaper Bank Network’s report showing that one in three families in the United States lack an adequate supply of diapers for infants and toddlers—and by research indicating an estimated 220,000 local families were in need of diapers—Junior League of Boca Raton established a diaper bank that has provided more than 600,000 diapers to date and successfully advocated for the inclusion of diapers in the policy definition of “human needs.”
