Junior League Service In Action
⚓ With more than 16,000 past and present members, The Junior League of Rhode Island, Inc. (JLRI) has been a volunteer powerhouse in the State of Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts since 1921.
⚓ JLRI is a proven training ground for women to become community and civic leaders – learning how to effectively manage a non-profit organization, fundraise and develop meaningful community service programs.
⚓ Over the past 97 years, 250+ nonprofit organizations have benefited from collaboration with The Junior League of Rhode Island.
⚓ JLRI members have contributed more than 1 million hours of volunteer service and over 1.5 million in fundraising dollars. These volunteer hours and dollars have a combined present- day value of $25 million in direct services to women, children, and families in difficult circumstances.
The Junior League of Providence, Inc. (JLP) was founded on June 9, 1921. Much like Mary Harriman who founded the Junior League movement in 1901, the Junior League of Providence was started by a young, newly married Vera Metcalf and 18 of her societal friends, all who shared a passion to improve their community at large.
