The power of the JLS is fueled by the desire of our volunteers to positively impact our community. Throughout our history, our members have amassed hundreds of thousands of volunteer hours and contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to organizations that have relied on the Junior League of Syracuse for support during their inception, ongoing maintenance of programs and in difficult times. The JLS’s training opportunities, both formal and experiential, help members develop skills that often lead to endeavors which extend beyond our organizations bounds. Indeed, it is difficult to find an organization in the Syracuse area that has not benefited from the involvement of a JLS member.
