Women improving the Washington DC Community since 1912


Our nearly 2,400 members volunteer at community agencies throughout the Washington Metro area, providing aid where their expertise is needed most. You can find us tutoring a child, mentoring parents at a daycare center for homeless children, serving on community boards, or delivering life skills seminars to community members in recovery programs.


The Junior League of Washington has raised millions of dollars for the Washington DC Metropolitan community over the years.  Want to help? You can make a difference to the community today! Become a Supporter
