The Junior League of Northwest Arkansas 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. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

The Junior League of Northwest Arkansas reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism, and are a minimum age of 21.

Community Focus - Our community focus is domestic violence and child abuse in Northwest Arkansas. Current projects include assisting Children’s House, That’s My Bag suitcases for foster children, and administering Women’s Independence Network and Hunger/Nutrition in NWA.

Financial Support- We currently are funded through our Winter Dreams Tour of Homes, Touch a Truck, Add Another Place Setting Cookbook, sponsorships, corporate donations, and membership dues.   Fundraisers are necessary to continue to train volunteers and to provide funds to support our community projects.

New Member Training- New members attend training sessions for one year to prepare for active participation in the League and service to the community. Emphasis includes learning about the League, developing volunteer skills and meeting other members.
