The Junior League of San Francisco, Inc. (JLSF) is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, 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 JLSF is one of 17 Junior Leagues in California who participate in the State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC), which advocates for non-partisan legislation that supports League initiatives. Each year, JLSF sends two members to participate in SPAC, and these delegates advocate for community programs and help to research, analyze, and draft important legislation.
Each year, the JLSF partners with multiple community organizations whose missions match our community focus areas. For the 2020-2021 league year, the JSLF will be partnering with organizations who support the at-risk youth and elderly populations – SMART, Safe & Sound, Institute on Aging and Breakthrough SF
The JLSF conducts an annual diaper drive to support Help a Mother Out, a nonprofit organization that provides diapers, raises awareness, and advocates for long term change in the social safety net. Our contribution helps bolster the social and emotional health of young women and babies by creating stability and teaching self-sufficiency.
Through JLSF’s Done in a Day (DIAD) program, nonprofit organizations within the San Francisco Bay Area community can request JLSF volunteers to support their activities. DIAD volunteers participate in single day events or short-term projects that advance the JLSF focus area of supporting the social and emotional health of at-risk youth and elderly populations.
