President’s Note


Welcome to the Junior League of Boca Raton!

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the 2023-2024 President of the Junior League of Boca Raton and to continue a legacy of leadership and service. The Junior League of Boca Raton was established in 1971 and since that time it has made enormous contributions to the Boca Raton community, creating impact through our mission.

This year we have updated our mission to highlight our focus on women’s leadership development & community impact through our nonprofit partners and volunteers.  In addition, we have made some internal structural changes all while continuing our work with the community garden (the largest in South Florida). Our members have collected over 25,000 hygiene supplies for local women, over 500 books for title 1 elementary schools and of course donated hundreds of hours of time to improving the community. There is nothing more rewarding than helping others and our community.

Our aim is to create a lasting, meaningful impact through our programs and community partnerships. In the year ahead we plan to further our mission of advancing women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training.

At the Junior League we are always looking to see where our assistance can be the most beneficial and create the greatest impact for our community. Without the support of our members and donors, we would not be able to continue the legacy that began in 1971 and has since created The Boca Raton Historical Society, Boca Raton’s Children’s Museum, The Vegso Community Resource Center, and Children’s Place South.

Our mission drives us in everything we do and our focus on training women to be leaders allows us to create the change in our community that is needed at the time when it is needed the most.  I am grateful that I have been entrusted to lead our mission and vision this year.  We look forward to creating the future legacy of the Junior League of Boca Raton and will continue to rely on the support of our amazing members who number over 700 and the community that we serve.

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the Junior League of Boca Raton’s impact in the area and how you can support our mission.  Whether you choose to make a financial donation, participate in one of our fund development businesses, become a community partner or express interest in joining, your support is paramount to our success.  Thank you for helping us to make a meaningful impact in our community.
