About

Established in 1926, the Junior League of Roanoke Valley is an organization committed to promoting women, developing leaders, and investing in our community. Our 94-year legacy of leadership is built on our ability to train women leaders to tackle tough issues impacting our community. Over 400 members strong, the JLRV provides a strong foundation for civic leadership and also connects women who share a commitment to voluntarism and community service.

Known especially for our signature holiday event, Stocked Market, the JLRV is a driving force in the Roanoke Valley, offering volunteer service in the community, grants for area non-profits, and scholarships for high school students, just to name a few.

The Junior League of Roanoke Valley’s focus is addressing poverty by connecting the community to existing resources and removing barriers to healthcare and food. The JLRV welcomes all women who value our Mission.  We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations and communities.
