Why?

The Junior League of San Diego is rooted in the belief that a group of women can be a powerful force for change. JLSD offers women the opportunity to implement change in our community and to connect with other women with a concern for present and future generations.

How Are We Effective?

Membership in the Junior League of San Diego provides women with access to invaluable formal and on-the-job training — from leadership and organizational development to community program work, diversity training and fundraising. Through this unique training, our members learn to manage and train volunteers, unite communities and form partnerships. In addition, our national organization, the Association of Junior Leagues International (“AJLI”) organizes regular conferences and meetings to create opportunities for networking, collaboration and shared learning.
