President’s Message

Welcome to The Junior League of Collin County (JLCC). We are a vibrant women’s leadership organization committed to our mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and serving the Collin County community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

Our League was founded in 1976 by thirteen imaginative and resolute women. It is an honor to serve our members and this organization as we begin our 46th year of service to our community and continue the legacy of being change-makers for Collin County.

Our League is here today because of the women that served before us believing in their community, searching out the needs, and saying “YES!” to the call of servant leadership. Saying “YES!”, has developed empathic leaders and created innovative training benefiting our community. When women in our community say, “YES!” to joining the JLCC, we provide service and training opportunities, resulting in community transformation.

We believe that one woman can make a difference. Over the past 45 years we have seen our members SHINE with awareness, advocate on our League’s behalf, and become action-focused reformers throughout Collin County.

As we look at our upcoming League year, we are so excited for what is ahead of us. I welcome you to explore our website to see how we can partner with you:

  1. Each year women from across the Collin County area embark on a journey to serve their neighbors and develop their own leadership potential through the JLCC. One unique characteristic of the JLCC is that women are invited to join at any life stage (ages 21 to 80+) and the League serves as an excellent conduit to acclimate to the community especially for newcomers to Collin County.

  2. The JLCC provides volunteers and funding to area nonprofit agencies for the benefit and enrichment of the Collin County community and the development and education of our League volunteers. Each year, JLCC invests thousands of volunteer hours with our community agencies and programs. This year nearly 1,000 League members will provide countless volunteer hours to the League’s projects and programs. In addition to the volunteer service that League members contribute to our community, JLCC has provided millions of dollars over the years to fund programs and assist agencies that improve the overall well-being of our community.
