Our History

In 1937, a group of women formed the “Cotillion Club” working to ensure Owensboro’s children and families had a voice among community developments. In 1974, that group joined the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) to further promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and to improve the local community through effective action and leadership of its trained volunteers.

Today, the Junior League of Owensboro is approximately 300 members strong and continues to meet many of the needs in our community through hands-on volunteer activities, financial contributions, and public awareness campaigns of issues that affect children and families in the Owensboro-Daviess County area.
