Developing Women Leaders & Building Better Communities
The Junior League of Monmouth County (JLMC) is a vibrant group of over 300 women with diverse backgrounds who are passionate about empowering and developing the potential in women through volunteering in the Monmouth and Ocean Counties community to make it an even better place to live.
Sorry, there are no other upcoming events at this time.
The Junior League of Monmouth County is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
Are you interested in being part of Monmouth County’s only leadership training organization for women? We welcome all women over the age of 21 who demonstrate a commitment to voluntarism, regardless of race, religion, or national origin.
We depend on local resources to support our work in the community. As a donor to the Junior League of Monmouth County, you are supporting an organization devoted to training women leaders to create lasting community change.
Founded in 1939, the JLMC started with 13 members in Red Bank, NJ. Today, the JLMC has approximately 300 active and sustaining volunteer members living in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Our members are business owners, executives, accountants, lawyers, health care professionals and stay-at-home mothers. Membership is open to any woman, age 21 or over.
Join the JLMC
Women interested in joining the JLMC should attend a New Member Open House. These events are designed to introduce you to the JLMC, the purpose, history, and vision in a casual, fun setting. The New Member Open House also provides detailed information about the JLMC and membership requirements. All attendees are invited to submit an application for membership.

As an adult, it can be hard to find time and ways to volunteer. Through the JLMC, I have finally found a way to give back to the community that means so much to me and my family.

The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. (AJLI)
The Junior League — the over 125,000 women empowered to lead in over 290 Leagues in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Mexico — have amassed an archive of irrefutable results and an undisputed reputation as thoughtful and influential change agents for the public good. Our organization has been instrumental in championing education and literacy programs, children’s cultural development, school nutrition, vaccination, the Clean Water Act, and heightened awareness around domestic violence and alcohol abuse.
We Are The Junior League
True to their legacy, today’s League members are at the forefront of tackling society’s thorniest issues—addressing and acting as advocates on an array of critical issues including human trafficking, foster care, juvenile justice, teen self-esteem, cybercrimes, literacy, and the environment, among others—for the express purpose of enhancing the social, cultural and political fabric of our society.
The History of The Junior League
The Junior League, one of the oldest, largest, and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, has matured and evolved since it was founded by social activism pioneer Mary Harriman in 1901.
Our commitment has remained unwavering: to develop exceptionally qualified civic leaders who can identify a community’s most urgent and pressing needs and address them with meaningful and relevant programs and initiatives that not only improve lives but change the way people think.
