Congratulations to the Junior League of Chicago for being named one of Chicago’s Best Young Professional Groups. Junior League members throughout the world know the value and sense of community gained through membership in the Junior League, and so we are sure that this recognition is well-deserved.
Junior League of Chicago Members: 1,500+
This organization of women is committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community. Members donate more than 200,000 volunteer hours each year to build better, healthier communities in Chicagoland around their signature issues: education, healthy lifestyles and human trafficking. Junior League of Chicago President Ruth Gallagher Nelson says, “Our role is to do actual, committed, relationship-based service. We change our members’ lives. I cannot tell you the number of women who tell me, ‘If not for the Junior League’ stories. The end results range from being inspired to start an agency or a business to getting a promotion to meeting their best friend. This is what has kept me involved for 27 years.”
