Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The JLCR 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.
JLCR was founded as a service league in 1929. The group received its charter naming it Junior League of Cedar Rapids on Feb. 9, 1934. Currently, we are a diverse group of more than 300 active and sustaining members.
Our vision is to serve Cedar Rapids and the surrounding communities as a prominent source of female leaders for public and private service and as advocates for issues relating to women and children on a local, state, national and international level. In the last 80 years JLCR has lead and implemented many service projects to help improve our community. Below is a list of just a few:
- $1.63 million campaign for the Madge Phillips Center, a shelter that provides support and services to women and children in need
- Playtime Poppy - 370 shows, originally started by JLCR
- The Science Station started in 1986 by JLCR hosting over 1,000,000 visitors.
