Nonprofit Education & Training

As one of the oldest volunteer organizations in New York City, the New York Junior League has over 120 years of experience in program development and implementation, volunteer management and engagement, community organizing, leadership development, advocacy training, and nonprofit management. Since 1901, we have tackled society’s most pressing challenges, addressing and acting as advocates on critical issues including human trafficking, foster care, juvenile justice, adolescent self-esteem, literacy, and others.

We do this work in partnership with community-based organizations—working side-by-side with a diverse range of New York City’s small to mid-size nonprofit and community-based organizations. We’ve made programming, growth, and effectiveness possible for organizations including Women’s Prison Association, Avenues for Justice, Win, the Isaacs Center, and SCAN New York to name a few.

In addition to working with community organizations on a programmatic level, we educate NYJL volunteers on the requirements and opportunities for serving on nonprofit boards.
