Mission Statement

The Junior League of Worcester is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

The women of the Junior League of Worcester will work through involvement with our community to improve and enrich the quality of life of women and children.

Description

The Junior League of Worcester is open to women of all ages who are interested in voluntarism in Central Massachusetts. Whether you are a recent or long-time Worcester resident, a new college graduate, in the work force, a stay-at-home mom, an "empty-nester"; or even enjoying retirement, the JLW has something for you.

Our current ongoing projects include Coats for Kids and Project Fresh Start. Coats for Kids, in collaboration with the Worcester Public Schools, provided over 1,400 new coats, hats and mittens to underprivileged school-aged children last year.

Project Fresh Start provides new and used household goods such as linens, blankets, pillows, kitchen and bath items, as well as personal care needs to families or single parents moving from shelters into permanent housing. In nine short years, the JLW has given a "fresh start" to over 742 individuals from two area emergency shelters; Friendly House and the Frances Perkins House.

We also offer organized volunteer opportunities throughout the year in collaboration with other non-profits, schools and organizations in need of assistance.

Would you recommend Junior League of Worcester?

by Kerri M. from Worcester, MA (Administrator for this Organization) (2009-06-02 20:53:30.0)
I've always had the opportunity to volunteer through work or school but as a stay at home mom, the access to organized volunteer work didn't seem available - or so I thought. Since joining the league, I've discovered a network of highly talented, dedicated, professional women - each with their own set of experiences and skills, but all with the common goal to improve the lives of women and children in the community. The opportunities for growth, training, leadership and friendship in the organization are second to none!
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
