The group is composed of diverse, creative, compassionate, and action oriented women who are committed to promoting the League's mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action of trained volunteers. Our members have varying backgrounds and interests and share a commitment to volunteering.

Junior League of Cleveland


The Junior League of Cleveland is one of the oldest and largest Leagues. In 1912, The Junior League of Cleveland was organized by Mrs. John W. Cross (Katherine Mather), Mrs. Ralph Cobb, and a group of 67 women who wanted to make a difference in the city and their own lives.

They met monthly, often to hear a speaker whose topics dealt with social and service issues. They drew up a list of 190 places for volunteering, a "highly suggested" reading list, and adopted eight standing committees. Many of The JLC's later projects found their start during those first few years-- serving women, children, and educational needs. Money was raised to better the lives of the needy.

The Junior League of Cleveland (JLC) celebrated its 100th anniversary in September 2012.

Since its inception, the Junior League of Cleveland (JLC) has provided countless volunteer hours and more than $2.3 million to the community. The JLC has been involved with issues pertaining to children, education and women, providing volunteer energy, financial assistance, training and generating public support. Often in collaboration with other community groups and/or the public sector, the JLC designs and implements projects and programs to address community needs.

Happy 100th anniversary to The Junior League of Cleveland.
