The Junior League of Minneapolis is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. 

Since 1923, The Junior League of Minneapolis has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live.

As of 2021, we have more than 500 members who are focused on addressing the underlying issues that contribute to the opportunity gap in Minneapolis, one of the worst gaps in the nation. Specifically, we address the literacy and STEM  gap through our projects:

  1. 30 Million Words — 30 Million Words hosts Book Bashes: fun, celebratory events that provide one-on-one mentoring centered around a culturally relevant book. Children are paired with a Junior League volunteer to read the selected book and participate in creative arts and crafts related to the book. Children are given a copy of the book to keep and read again and again.
  2. Between the Lines — Between the Lines provides children of incarcerated female parent/caregivers an audio recording of their parent/caregiver reading a book to them, a personal message from their parent/caregiver and a new, wrapped, copy of the book.
  3.  H.O.M.E.S. (Hands-on Math, Engineering and Science) — H.O.M.E.S. brings STEM to life by translating abstract concepts into practical applications for parents and children to continue to leverage in their homes through hands-on projects and examples.
  4.  Helping Hands — Helping Hands offers thousands of volunteer hours to local non-profit partners & past Junior League projects who need hands-on woman-power to achieve their missions and meet their objectives. Shifts are structured on a “done-in-a-day” model where tasks are discrete and solve a short-term need for the partner organization.

In order to support our members in tackling the community's biggest challenges, the Junior League of Minneapolis develops the potential of women through skill-based training and facilitates leadership development.  These experiences help members strengthen their skills, better understand our community’s needs, and become leaders in their workplaces and in other nonprofit organizations.  

We look forward to this year's Give to the Max Day, and together with you, we can continue to be a force for good in our community.
