Bringing the Junior League to Boise
JLB was accepted into the Associate of Junior Leagues of America in March of 1928 with 28 charter members.
With the Depression gripping the country, the first order of business was to help the women and children in the Treasure Valley by hosting summer camps for underprivileged children, holding nutrition classes and well-baby clinics. These efforts provided the women and their families with nourishing food and improved the health of the babies, children and mothers.
Since it’s founding in 1928, the Junior League of Boise has consistently and systematically continued to improve the lives of the residents in the Treasure Valley. JLB boasts an impressive list of members who are recognized by their peers and the community for their commitment to the residents of Treasure Valley. Numerous members have been recognized by the Idaho Business Review as Women of the Year and Accomplished Under 40 in addition to receiving other civic and community awards.
The Junior League of Boise welcomes women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and a commitment to volunteerism and to the community. Our members include executives, community leaders, entrepreneurs, stay-at-home mothers, and professional women who share a common vision: to improve our community in a positive way.
