We are one of 292 Junior Leagues located in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The League’s purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. We reach out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.

The Junior League empowers women through leadership training and development to take action in the Victoria community, all while building relationships with a diverse group of dedicated, talented women. You will learn about the Victoria community and how to collaborate with other organizations to achieve a common goal. As a member, you will receive training and can sharpen your skills in areas such as public speaking, public relations, budgeting, facilitation, team building, fundraising, advocacy, volunteer coordination, and program development.
