About Us

The New York Junior League (NYJL) is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. NYJL volunteers are bound by a single goal: to improve the health and well-being of women, children, and families in our city.

 

Today, the NYJL is comprised of over 60 volunteer committees and is led by a Board of Directors comprised of 14 volunteers who have served the NYJL and the community with distinction. With an annual budget of approximately $3,000,000, the NYJL’s operations are primarily financed through membership dues and volunteer-supported fundraising events. 

 

Organizationally, the Junior League has over a century of history promoting volunteerism in New York City and is one of the most well-established volunteer associations in the world. Presently, the Junior League’s global membership encompasses more than 140,000 women in 291 Leagues in four countries.

 

NYJL’s headquarters are located at Astor House, located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
