Junior League of Seattle

For more than a century, Junior League members have confronted society’s most pressing issues and tackled its toughest problems, leaving a legacy of reform like no other. Since its inception in 1923, members of the Junior League of Seattle (JLS) have worked to improve our community through mission-driven projects and hands-on work with many Community Partners. Each year, JLS members contribute over 45,000 hours of service to the community. Currently, the Junior League of Seattle is placing its focus, programs, and projects on Literacy.

In addition to their focus areas, the JLS also provides volunteers for short-term projects through Done in a Day and provides art education to over 19,000 King County students each year through Northwest Art Project.

The Northwest Art Project

For more than 60 years, the Junior League of Seattle has brought visual art learning directly to classrooms across King County through traveling art exhibits, training for educators, and PTSA docents. Over 500 Junior League docents have been part of the project that has reached over 300,000 children in more than 600 schools in King County.
