From Our President
Welcome to the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri! On behalf of the more than 1,400 members of our organization, we are excited that you have come here to learn more about our mission and our impact on the five-county area we serve. We are a diverse group of women who are united by our commitment to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving our community. In other words, the JLKCMO trains women to be leaders by providing them with volunteer roles that meet important needs in our community.
It gives us great pride to share that since our inception in 1914, we’ve given $16.5 million and 2.3 million volunteer hours to our community!
Our current focus area is Women and Children and we are dedicated to making a measurable difference on three issues within this focus: reducing Abuse and Neglect, supporting Childhood Development and increasing Women’s Self-Sustainability through a variety of original programming.
I encourage you to look through this site to learn about our fascinating history and get a feel for how you can support our mission and our focus by becoming a member, a sponsor or by attending one of our amazing fundraisers.
