About Us

Women Building Better Communities

For over 90 years, the Junior League of Pittsburgh (JLP) has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live.

Our dedicated members come from a wide variety of backgrounds and interests and share a commitment to volunteering. We work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions and implement change.

Time and time again, the Junior League is one of the first to step up and tackle our community’s biggest challenges. Our members collectively contribute 10,000 volunteer hours annually in the Pittsburgh community.

Mission

We are an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

We reach out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.
