We are the Junior League of Rochester (JLR) 

We empower women and provide valuable leadership training. We are giving local women the tools to get involved, put their talents to work, and positively impact the communities of the Rochester area.

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 1933, the Junior League of Rochester plays an integral part in the development, improvement, and support of the communities of Rochester.
