Atlanta Daybook Nonprofit Spotlight: Junior League of Atlanta

The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) is an organization of women, committed to making lasting transformation in the Atlanta community. Their 100 year legacy of leadership is built on their ability to train women leaders to tackle tough issues impacting women and children. The JLA provides a strong foundation for civic leadership and also connects women who share a commitment to voluntarism and community transformation.

In 1916, with the leadership of Isoline Campbell, 45 women came together to establish The JLA. The purpose was to train women to build better, stronger communities in the Atlanta area. For 100 years, the League has grown their membership and involvement in the community. This organization of diverse women continues to support a wide variety of programs that support women and children at risk and make Atlanta a better community.

The JLA reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.

The JLA partners with community agencies that reflect their mission, vision and values.  Focused on improving the health, education and welfare of women and children at risk, and making significant community change in Commercial Sexual Exploitation/Human Trafficking, Early Childhood Education, and Generational Poverty, the JLA provides much-needed volunteer resources and funding, and serves as a catalyst for positive change through their partnership with approximately 100 nonprofit organizations.  Find out more information here.


The Junior League of Atlanta is led by 2017-18 President Rebekah Henry Murphy, and President-Elect Carla C. Smith.
