We are the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Above all else, our goal is to promote and perpetuate social change in the Fort Lauderdale communities that will benefit most from it. By empowering women and providing valuable leadership training, we are giving local women the tools to get involved, put their talents to work, and positively impact the communities of Broward County.
Strength in Numbers
As one of hundreds of Junior League chapters across the world, we are a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. (AJLI). Established in 1937, the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale plays an integral part in the development, improvement, and support of the communities of Broward County, Florida.
Our Local Impact
The Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale is focused on three areas of impact in our community, as well as leadership training for the women volunteers.
Done In A Day – Our members come together to target short-term volunteer projects that can be accomplished in a single day. Examples of our projects are collecting cribs for infants at the Susan B. Anthony Recovery center, hosting a Halloween party at Kids in Distress, and more.
Childhood Fitness and Nutrition – Programs to successfully address the obesity epidemic as it affects children living in Broward County through nutrition education and the promotion of a physically active lifestyle.
Food Insecurity – We donate our time and resources to improve food access by volunteering at food banks such as Feeding South Florida and hosting food drives for local non-profits such as Pantry of Broward, and much more.
