President’s Note

On behalf of the 2022-2023 Junior League of Long Island Board, I would like to welcome everyone to our 71st year.

Since 1951, The Junior League of Long Island has been empowering our women volunteers to develop programs and cultivate relationships with organizations in the Nassau & Suffolk County areas to improve our community. We welcome our volunteers to collaborate, develop new skills, refine their leadership skills and support their communities while doing so.

Our mission is to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We welcome all women who want to make a difference in their community through volunteering and activism. Together we are an unstoppable force.

This League year our focus will be hand on in our community. While the Junior League of Long Island continued to support our community and our partners throughout the pandemic, we did so from the sidelines due to Covid. This League year we will hit the ground running, to be hands on in our communities and within our organization to build stronger relationships in the communities we serve and amongst ourselves. The steps we take this year will lay the foundation for years to come.

I am in awe of the women I am surrounded by in our League. It is an honor to work so closely with such and inspiring group of ladies. Join me in building a community of strong women, where we can communicate, support and take care of each other. Where we can give women space to cultivate their strength and tell their stories through volunteerism.

I look forward to our year ahead and all the success it will bring with it!

“Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.” – Dorothy Height

With warmest regards,
