For more than 80 years, The Junior League of Victoria, Texas has been on the forefront of social reform, identifying problems and finding solutions in a collaborative way. The list of issues we've tackled is long and complicated: illiteracy, domestic violence, child abuse, food insecurity, to name just a few.
Our approach is simple. Through hands-on training and formal learning opportunities we give women the skills they need to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Since 2013, JLV has focused our community impact on developing potential in at-risk adolescent girls. Recent projects include mentoring girls in the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (formerly Mitchell Guidance Center) and a forum to interact, set goals, and network with local career women via the Women Leaders of Tomorrow Conference in partnership with VISD. Additionally, we raise awareness about hidden issues affecting women through the Little Black Dress Initiative.
