About JLAA

The Junior League of Ann Arbor is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  

The Junior League of Ann Arbor, Inc. is a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc., an international organization of 291 Junior Leagues in four countries.   We reach out to women of all races, religions and national origins who are committed to volunteerism and advancing our community.

The JLAA is proud to be a 501©3 not-for-profit organization. Its intent is wholly educational and charitable. All programs and activities are supported by League membership dues, foundation and corporate grants and other revenue-producing efforts.

The League strives to champion emerging community issues and partner with local agencies to serve the population in need.  Over many years of service, the Junior League of Ann Arbor has provided volunteer support to countless community agencies in the pursuit of reducing the negative impacts of homelessness, hunger, domestic violence, childhood bullying and relational aggression, illiteracy, and lack of early childhood support.  While our focus of impact in the community changes with the needs of the community, we pride ourselves on being on the frontlines in response to the emerging and unmet local needs.
