President’s Message

Welcome from the Junior League of Waco! For 83 years, we have focused on developing the potential of women, promoting voluntarism and providing solutions to improve our community.

Today, we stand 500 women strong in our combined active and sustainer membership and we continue to put top priority in equipping women to be civic leaders. We are proud of our heritage and how the work that we have done over the past eight decades is showcased across our city.  

The current focus and impact area for our resources and volunteer efforts is early childhood education. Our community projects that promote education are: PACI (Parent and Child Initiative) Service Fair, Family Story Night, Practical Parenting and Educate & Collaborate. We also recently provided a grant to fund the return of the Reach Out & Read Program that is offered through the Family Health Center. We are glad to be collaborating with other community leaders that also believe in the change that can occur in a child’s brain when education is provided in the early years of life.

When we teach a parent, we change a family. When we provide resources to an educator, we change a classroom. When we focus our collective efforts on education, we change our city. And, when we empower a woman, we change our world.

If you are considering collaborating with us through membership in The Junior League of Waco or interested in making a financial gift to support our mission, we would be happy to connect with you!

Thank you for your support.
