We are the Junior League of Akron

Above all else, our goal is to promote and perpetuate social change in the Akron communities that will benefit most from it. By empowering women and providing valuable leadership training, we are giving local women the tools to get involved, put their talents to work, and positively impact the communities of Summit County.

Strength in Numbers

As one of hundreds of Junior League chapters across the world, we are a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. (AJLI). Established in 1923, the Junior League of Akron plays an integral part in the development, improvement, and support of the communities of Akron, Ohio.

Our Local Impact

Right now, our primary focus of food insecurity requires immediate action, and our multi-faceted approach is making an impact. In 2020-2021, we plan to seek out the organizations that most need our help by having discussions and building partnerships throughout the community. If you’re interested in learning more about our current focus or developing your own civic leadership skills, we welcome you to learn more or connect with us.

Help Us Lead Change

There is always more work to be done, more help needed, and more opportunities to make an impact in the Greater Akron area. The empowered women of The Junior League of Akron are working to improve our local communities through leadership and effective action. Will you join them?
