Welcome to the Junior League of Halifax (JLH). We are an organization of women who have been dedicated to our mission of developing the potential of women, improving communities and promoting voluntarism in Halifax for over 80 years.  Through the talents of our membership, we strive to support and enrich the lives of women, children and families in Halifax.

In addition to improving our communities, the JLH is focused on training our members.  JLH members receive training on an assortment of topics such as leadership, organizational development skills, strategic planning and advocacy.  As well, the JLH provides informal training through serving on JLH committees and volunteering with our community programs.  Through this combination of formal and informal training, the JLH helps to foster the development of our members to become effective volunteers and community leaders.

Junior League of Halifax has a long history of creating positive community change in Halifax through our projects. This is an exciting time as we embark on our new focus area, Self-Esteem & Empowerment. This year we have launched our Girls Link workshop promotes self-esteem and empowerment and it will help girls be confident, to be positive, to express themselves, and to meet other girls in their community through activities, crafts, and discussion in a fun, comfortable, and safe environment.

We are eager to see what will be accomplished on this new path! If you are interested in learning more about how you could be involved and how the Junior League of Halifax could assist with your personal growth and fulfillment, please email info@juniorleagueofhalifax.org for more information. We are accepting new members and would like to discuss whether the JLH would be a fit for you.

I am honoured to serve as the 84rd President of the Junior League of Halifax and I am proud to lead this group of incredible women for 2016-2017.  I would like to thank our League and our community.

President, 2016-2017
