Membership

It starts with a woman — it starts with you.

Founded in 1920, the Junior League of Columbus is part of a network of more than 291 Junior League Organizations across the globe.  We are a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization, whose members are dedicated to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential or women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  We are a group of approximately 150 active members, 350 Sustaining members, and 50-60 New Members.
