President's Message

Welcome to the Junior League of Roanoke Valley’s Website!  I am both honored and excited to serve as the President of this organization for the 2019-2020 League year. Joining the Junior League of Roanoke Valley is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I am thankful for the opportunity to share more information with you about an organization that means so much to me.

The Junior League of Roanoke Valley is a non-profit organization of over 400 members committed to our mission statement of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  Our organization welcomes all women who value our mission statement. Furthermore, we are committed to inclusive environments of individuals, organizations, and communities.

Founded in 1926, the Junior League of Roanoke Valley is one of 291 Leagues from four different countries that compose the Association of Junior Leagues International.  All Junior Leagues share a common goal of training volunteers and developing civic and community leaders. Junior Leagues throughout the world are also united in their shared desire to bring about lasting and meaningful change in their communities

The Junior League of Roanoke Valley’s Community Focus is addressing poverty by connecting the community to existing resources and removing barriers to healthcare and food.  The JLRV offers community volunteer opportunities to our members with other non-profit organizations and partners relating to our community focus area. This year marks the kickoff year for the League’s new Community Focus Grants, which provide grant funding to local community organizations to fund projects that align with the JLRV focus.   Each November, the JLRV raises funds to support our organization and community programs through our signature fundraising event, The Stocked Market.

Our organization is a premier source of leadership training and development opportunities for women in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas. If you are interested in becoming a member of the JLRV, you can read more about our process in the About section of this website.  I joined the JLRV in 2012 because I wanted to further grow my leadership skills, volunteer, and develop friendships with like-minded women. I can truly say that my membership in this organization has given many opportunities to do each of these things.

Thank you for interest in the Junior League of Roanoke Valley.  I encourage you to take the opportunity to further explore this website and learn more about this organization.

Best Regards,

Lindsay Phipps
