A Message From the President

Dear Friends of the League

The Junior League of Johnson City (JLJC) has a well-established history of helping the community and training its members to be future leaders.  Our members strive to be welcoming to all women who share our vision and mission.  Thank you for your interest in our organization!

My personal experience with the Junior League is one of belonging.  I moved to Johnson City in 2009 and wanted a way to learn about the city and connect to people in the community – JLJC provided both.  There are many service organizations in the area that provide volunteer opportunities.  However, those who join the Junior League can expect to find more.  Our members will find friendship, education on important issues, and training you can apply to future leadership positions.  Upon joining, I was immediately welcomed into the organization and was provided several opportunities to serve and engage in the community I was now living.

Since 1947, the League has been a vital part of the Johnson City community.  We have helped established major community agencies such as Watauga Mental Health, HandsOn! Museum, and the Children’s Advocacy Center.  As we look to the future of Johnson City, we hope to be active members in the growth and sustainability of the city.  This year we will be looking at our community impact, continuing the work of building up our members, and making sure that we are a safe, inclusive space for all women who want to serve and give back to the community.

 

Sincerely,

Brittany Butler

JLJC President
