DIAD – Shelter Bag Project
Most children leave the foster care system with their belongings in a trash bag…we are going to do our part to try and change that! The JLW is working on a Done-In-A-Day project where we purchase duffel bags for foster children and fill them with items that not only give them comfort, but that they might need when they have to leave a house quickly,things like a blanket, teddy bear, toothbrush and toothpaste. Donations will be made to two Worcester DCF agencies to distribue to foster children. Check Companio for more information
May annual dinner
Please join us for our final GMM of the JLW year. We will reflect on our year of volunteering and celebrate the wonderful women that make up the Junior League of Worcester. We will also “pass the gavel” to our new President. We encourage all members to join us for this final meeting, as we will also be addressing League business as well.

welcome to your junior league
Since 1925, the Junior League of Worcester has continued to grow by improving and enriching the quality of life for women and children. Through a shared mission, league members work to make a difference through individual and collaborative efforts. The JLW has committed itself to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the leadership and effective action of trained volunteers. We have worked collaboratively with more than 125 area organizations and have touched the lives of thousands of individuals throughout our history. While times have changed, our members still donate their time, energies and financial means to promote positive change and to secure a bright future for our city.
voluntarism & community service
We are focused on creating positive change by inspiring ourselves and those around us to bravely address the most pressing issues facing our community.
We partner with local non profits to provide trained volunteers who can fill resource gaps so that we all contribute to a better future for Worcester.
professional development & training
We develop the next generation of female civic leaders through hands-on training in non profit management and practical experience in program delivery.
The friendships made here last a lifetime. Our membership is diverse, but one thing binds us together…we love the community and love to help other women be all that they can be.
