Join JLS and Make. A. Difference.

Are you an energetic woman interested in developing the potential of women and bettering your community in a volunteer capacity? Are you looking to become part of a group of like-minded women?

The Junior League of Springfield (JLS) is looking for fun, fearless females to join us in our mission to serve the community and develop the leadership potential of women. Anyone can join, and we’d love to meet you!

JLS is part of an international volunteer organization of women who come together for one reason: we care about our communities and want to make a difference. For the past 60 years, we have been involved in education, advocacy and community action. At the same time, we have been developing the potential of women like you, with leadership opportunities, training, friendship and support.

The League’s commitment to developing the potential of women for community leadership may well be our competitive edge. Come and share your skills and learn with us as we continue to look for meaningful ways to impact our communities and to bridge the gap between society’s needs and existing community resources.
