Women building better communities. That’s the Junior League.

The Junior League of Long Island. (JLLI) was formed in 1951. Since its foundation, the Junior League of Long Island has been at the forefront of identifying and fulfilling community needs. The Junior League has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live. Junior League members, reflecting a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and professional pursuits work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions, and work for change. Time and time again, the Junior League is among the first organizations to step up to the plate and tackle a community’s biggest challenges.
