A Legacy of Proven Leadership

1916 - 2016

The Junior League of Atlanta's legacy comes from a small group of 45 women who in 1916 strategically linked vision, social capital, and trained action to address community challenges. These women did not set out to change the world, only to improve the lives of women and children in Atlanta by tackling issues on the frontlines. As we look forward to our Centennial, we are an organization of nearly 3,500 women strong focused on tackling the issues facing our community including generational poverty, commercial sexual exploitation/human trafficking and early childhood education.
