We’re Empowering the Next Great Civic Leaders…

And we’re already making a powerful impact by leading change within Rochester communities! To us, becoming a civic leader is all about understanding that local efforts have a global reach, and it all begins with creating local leadership opportunities that put women’s skills and passion to work right here in Rochester. If you’re interested in developing civic leadership skills while collaborating on important efforts with a group of like-minded women, you’re in the right place!

The Junior League is a Highly Respected Organization with an Extraordinary Legacy…

And the Junior League of Rochester is very proud of that historic reputation, but as society changes, we adapt and evolve. We strive to put our venerable values to work in modern ways; demonstrating our pride and perpetuating our legacy by serving as a powerful voice for action, justice and change throughout Rochester. Together, we are working to empower our members to impact local family’s self-sufficiency. We are developing our diaper bank, supporting our partner agencies, targeting our public affairs initiatives and improving member training and experience. Rochester women will lead this important initiative. Will you be one of them?
