Community Impact

Since its inception in 1929, the Junior League of Saginaw Valley (now Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region) has worked to fulfill its mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective leadership of trained volunteers. From arts and education to helping at-risk children and promoting healthy lifestyles, the Junior League has created and participated in a wide variety of projects over the past 80 years. We strive to impact the health and wellness of the women and children in our community.
