The Junior League of Louisville

Being a Realtor is one of my favorite things that I do. A close runner up is being involved in my Louisville community, volunteering to make a difference, and meeting great new people. Not long ago, I found a great organization that helps me do all three: The Junior League of Louisville, founded in 1921. The Junior League of Louisville (JLL) is a part of a nationwide League that was founded in 1901, The Association of Junior Leagues International.

So, what is the JLL? Our mission statement states “The Junior League of Louisville, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, to developing the potential of women, and to improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. “ This is a group of ambitious women ready to serve our community. In the last year that I have been involved, I have had the privilege of volunteering at the Family Scholar House helping to teach single mothers to cook healthy meals, Blessings in a Backpack meeting children who touched my heart, and Keep In Touch where I was able to help women check in to get a mammogram. These are just a small portion of the charities that the JLL is involved in. We also are available to help non profit organizations find volunteer members for temporary events.

The JLL also takes care of their own members by offering free monthly classes to train and educate us. We take this training and go out into Louisville to make our community a better place. In the 1940s, the JLL helped create the Children’s Theater. And more recently, the JLL had a big hand in helping create the Waterfront Park. These are just a few of the great things that we have done. The Junior League of Louisville is an amazing organization and I am proud to be a part of it. But we can’t help all of these charities without the great generosity of Louisville citizens. Two of our biggest fundraisers are our HollyDays 3-day, buy local shopping extravaganza in November, and selling our deliciously amazing cookbooks including our newest cookbook, Bluegrass Gatherings.

I am an active member who sits on the Marketing and Public Relations committee for the JLL this year. If you have any questions about the League or donating, please email me at Katelyn@AtHomeInLouisville.com.
