Member Success Story: Community Impact
I joined the Junior League of San Francisco (JLSF) several years ago after transferring from the Seattle Junior League chapter. It’s been both personally and professionally rewarding in many ways. I’ve formed new friendships with incredible women I wouldn’t have otherwise met. I’ve stretched my leadership skills outside my comfort zone and deepened my connections to the community by volunteering for a variety of local nonprofits that are positively impacting our city.
I’m especially drawn to the Advocacy Committee’s work, which develops members’ community awareness, provides ways to take action, and trains members on how to be effective advocates. On this committee, I’ve had the chance to learn about and help engage our League members around legislative issues and local organizations that support JLSF’s mission to advance the social and emotional well-being of youth and elderly.
The annual Capitol Day event in Sacramento is always a highlight of mine, which brings together members across Junior Leagues of California every spring to meet with state legislators to advocate for our shared priorities and how we can partner together. I’d highly encourage other members to attend…
it’s a really inspiring, informative and fun experience!
