Get to know the Junior League of Roanoke Valley

With approximately 150 active members, the JLRV makes a difference in the greater Roanoke Valley through hands-on action to help children and their families, provide financial support in the form of grants to other community organizations, and through the long-term results of training effective volunteers. Our membership is open to women of all races, religions and national origins, and includes recent college graduates, busy moms and business women – all of whom want to make a stronger impact in our community.

JLRV is committed to ensuring children and their families have the opportunities and services for optimal physical, education, cultural, emotional and social growth and development.

Comprised of Junior Leagues in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Great Britain, AJLI has been providing support, guidance and leadership development opportunities to member Leagues for more than 90 years. More than 190,000 Junior League members have been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make communities healthier, including: childhood immunization, family literacy, women’s shelters, children’s museums, historic preservation, leadership development, and more.
