The Junior League of Nashville (JLN) was founded in 1922 by a group of visionary women committed to serving the Nashville community in a volunteer capacity. Today, JLN has almost 1500 members and remains committed to developing the potential of women as leaders and grassroots volunteers. Continuing our decades-long focus on women and children, the Junior League of Nashville will develop new initiatives in human trafficking and literacy, and continue our Kids in the Kitchen project, through our centennial in 2022.

The Junior League of Nashville is a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI). Of the 295 leagues around the world with a total 125,000 members, the JLN is among the largest in the association. JLN has founded many important Nashville resources, such as the Nashville Children’s Theatre, Renewal House, Our Kids, and the JLN Children’s Services at the downtown Nashville Public Library.

Our first community project was the Junior League Home for Crippled Children, founded in 1923 as a rehabilitation hospital for children with polio. In 1970, the Junior League merged that facility with the then-new Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, and the hospital remains a major focus of JLN philanthropy and volunteer support.

Our work is supported by community support and donations, Annual Fund gifts, membership dues, and by our major fundraisers.

JLN has been recognized for its volunteer management by one of our partner agencies, Hands On Nashville, in
