We’re Empowering the Next Great Civic Leaders…

And we’re already making a powerful impact by leading change within Akron, Ohio communities! To us, becoming a civic leader is all about understanding that local efforts have a global reach, and it all begins with creating local leadership opportunities that put women’s skills and passion to work right here in the Greater Akron area. If you’re interested in developing civic leadership skills while collaborating on important efforts with a group of like-minded women, you’re in the right place!

The Junior League is Committed To Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

We believe that creating and sustaining a diverse Membership is critical to our Mission. Living the value of diversity means we are committed to centering equity, inclusion, and belonging in our individual, organizational, and community relationships.

And our league, the Junior League of Akron, is very proud of that historic reputation, but as society changes, we adapt and evolve. We strive to put our venerable values to work in modern ways; demonstrating our pride and perpetuating our legacy by serving as a powerful voice for action, justice and change throughout Summit County. Together, we are working to empower our members to reduce food insecurity. We are committing to reaching our 2020-2021 goal of building partnerships and serving the community. Northeast Ohio women will lead this important initiative. Will you be one of them?
