Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The New York Junior League reaches out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest and commitment to volunteerism.

Since 1901, the NYJL has been a leader in identifying and responding to unmet community needs. Through direct service, collaborations with other community organizations and advocacy, the NYJL provides a positive force for change within the communities it serves.
