Our goals are to be a catalyst for change.
To improve our community with a focus on children.
To train women as effective community volunteers.
To be a creative and diverse group that addresses community needs and membership interests.
The Junior League of Long Beach (JLLB) has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community healthier, more vital places to live. Since 1931, the JLLB has worked with the community to identify existing needs, raise funds to meet those needs, and design projects that are financially sustainable. Through research and involvement with the community partners, the JLLB has identified a variety of community needs and assigned member volunteers to fill those needs. Over the years, the League has created and developed over 60 projects that have been launched into the community. Many of the projects have gone on to become their own nonprofit organization such as Casa Youth Shelter and Children’s Dental Clinic. The JLLB continues to focus on the needs of children in our community and neighborhoods.
Over 500 members strong, the Junior League of Long Beach reaches out to all women regardless of race, color, religion, or national origin who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism. The majority of our members combine volunteer and professional careers. The JLLB is one of over 294 Junior Leagues throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Great Britain. Each individual League is a part of the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) representing nearly 200,000 members worldwide.
