We are the Junior League of Tacoma

Above all else, our goal is to promote and perpetuate social change in the Tacoma/Pierce County communities that will benefit most from it. By empowering women and providing valuable leadership training, we are giving local women the tools to get involved, put their talents to work, and positively impact the communities of Tacoma/Pierce County

Strength in Numbers

Our Local Impact

At the Junior League of Tacoma we live in the moment. To us, that means adjusting our focus according to our community’s most pressing needs. Our work is always evolving, and that keeps us on our toes, striving for progress, and preparing to take on whatever comes next.

Our current community impact focuses on youth experiencing homelessness by addressing outcomes of housing uncertainty through partnering with community stakeholders at local youth shelters to organizations working with public schools across Pierce County who support vulnerable students. As members of the JLT, we are committed to educating women about their communities’ needs by providing them with the tools to advocate and lead.

Our goal is to help Tacoma/Pierce County women develop civic leadership skills through the work they do, then put those talents to work in the communities that need it. Our current focus of Youth Experiencing Homelessness gives women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where they live and work.

If you’re interested in learning more about our current focus or developing your own civic leadership skills, we welcome you to learn more or connect with us.
