Since 1930, the Junior League of York has devoted countless volunteer hours and millions of dollars to building a better York!
We are a diverse group of women who live primarily in York County. We are mothers, daughters, wives, caregivers and best friends. We are professional, educated, determined and dedicated to improving the York community.
We are an organization made up of women you know - women starting new careers or re-inventing old ones, women staying home raising their families, women making changes to their lives, improving themselves and the communities where they live and work.
A small but mighty group of women, we are committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
Dedicated to building a better community, the Junior League of York is a driving force behind many of the initiatives that make our community a better place to live – Olivia’s House, the Children’s Advocacy Center and Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention.
Our focus of impact in the community changes with the needs of the community. Currently, we are in the midst of a three-year focus on changing lives through literacy. We are accomplishing this through grants to Martin Library supporting their Sunday hours and to Junior Achievement’s Challenge at Finance Park educating the youth in our community to make personal financial decisions.
Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior League of York reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.
