About the Junior League of Portland

In 1910, Gretchen Corbett convinced her sewing group and other friends to join her in founding the Junior League of Portland. As an original member of the first Junior League in New York City in 1901, Gretchen knew the rapidly growing Portland community would also need a group of trained women volunteers to address issues in the community as they arose.

Today, the Junior League of Portland (JLP) is the fourth oldest League in the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) and the first on the west coast. Since that time, JLP has provided countless volunteer hours to improving the community, launched much needed programs and initiatives to protect the underserved, and prepared generations of local women for a lifetime of civic leadership.We are devoted to:

  • Effecting change within our communities
  • Training and developing civic leaders
  • Promoting voluntarism

We warmly welcome women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in voluntarism, a commitment to community service, and an interest in developing their potential to better serve the Portland community.
