Message from the President
Welcome to the Junior League of New Orleans website!
The Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
We match volunteer hours with financial support to implement 10 current outreach and service projects with community partners such as Lafayette Academy and Bayou Distric Foundation or through JLNO-developed programs such as Judgment Call and Get On Board. Fund development programs such as our Buy, Save and Serve card, Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Shop, and four award-winning cookbooks provide our financial commitment to the community and valuable training to our members.
It is a great time to be in New Orleans and it is a great time to serve this city. Now in our 89th year of service to the New Orleans community, JLNO is currently the ninth largest Junior League in the world. Our current focus areas are:
Rebuilding New Orleans
Children’s Wellbeing & Education
