What we do

We’re Developing Women To Do A World of Good!

Our Mission comprises two parts: advancing women’s leadership and meaningful community impact. As a member of the Junior League, you get both of these with the addition of a strong, powerful community of like-minded women alongside you. We call that the 3 C’s – Civic Leadership, Community Impact, and Connection.

We’re Creating Fulfilling Leadership Opportunities Throughout Santa Clara County

The Junior League of San Jose is 100% volunteer-run, which means every member makes a difference and impacts our Mission. We aim to help Santa Clara County women develop civic leadership skills through their work and training programs and then put those talents to work in the communities that need them.

At the heart of our organization lies a passion for empowering women to become stronger leaders equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to create a more equitable and vibrant community. We believe in the transformative power of engaged, informed, and connected women. 

We’re Transforming Santa Clara County Communities By Challenging the Status Quo

Our current focus of supporting community partners and initiatives for Transitional-Age Foster Youth gives women opportunities to grow while positively impacting the communities where they live and work. Our community goal aims to improve outcomes for transitional-age foster youth by supporting initiatives to ensure that 50% of foster youth earn $50,000 by age 26. We support community partners through direct service, advocacy, capacity building, coalition building, and grant-making. 

Each year, members can participate in many direct service opportunities, engage in strategic grant-making, and learn about public policy and advocacy through our partnership with the California State Public Affairs Committee (CalSPAC).

We Know That We Are Better Together

Throughout your Junior League experience, you’ll be surrounded by amazing women committed to developing themselves and improving their communities. Junior League of San Jose is not a social club or a community service organization but instead a community of women working to be catalysts for lasting community change.
