Inspiring Women — Inspiring Communities

Over one hundred years ago, Mary Harriman founded the Junior League in New York City as a direct result of her work with recent immigrants in the settlement houses there. Her vision was to establish a channel to promote social responsibility and an opportunity to positively impact the community at large.

The Junior League of Toledo is a network of empowered female civic leaders working with community partners to address and solve pressing issues like childhood bullying and adult literacy. We’re part of an international network of 291 Leagues comprised of over 160,000 women, in Canada, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S., engaged in similar work in their own communities. This provides us with a unique and powerful depth of knowledge and resourcefulness to bring about the changes we strive to accomplish.
