President’s Message

Welcome to the Junior League of Beaumont’s website. Our hope is that within these pages you can learn more about what we do and choose to do one of three things:

1.  Support us in our Mission: to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The women in our League volunteer their time planning and executing events that promote a healthy lifestyle through our Healthy Behaviors project, support children transitioning into independent living after foster care through our Transitioning Youth project, and assisting victims of human trafficking through our Abolish project. Our Service Squad members do the same for various organizations throughout Southeast Texas, including Beaumont Children’s Museum and Make-A-Wish. Your participation in our major fundraisers (Main Street Market in December and Dancing With The Stars of Southeast Texas in the Spring) allow us to continue serving our community.

2.  Join us as a Member! Like what you’ve seen/heard/read about us? Want to use your skills or gain new ones while serving in your community? Interested in networking with like-minded civic leaders? Maybe you’re new to town and just want to meet other women with a desire to give back too. We’d love for you to come to an event, check out a meeting, and be part of our squad.

3. Tell your friends about us. Do you know someone interested in gaining leadership skills? We’d love for them to join forces with us. Are you involved in an organization that needs specific monetary assistance? Have them apply for a grant through our Community Assistance Fund. Need a location to host a party? Consider renting our facility. We welcome everyone to join us at our events, on our Facebook page, and on our website.

During these uncertain times, here’s what we know for sure: we’re here to serve you, our community, through the kind of leadership only made possible by working together. Thank you for visiting and we look forward to serving you and seeing you in person soon.
