We’re Empowering the Next Great Civic Leaders…

And we’re already making a powerful impact by leading change within Knoxville area and surrounding communities! To us, becoming a civic leader is all about understanding that local efforts have a global reach, and it all begins with creating local leadership opportunities that put women’s skills and passion to work right here in East Tennessee. If you’re interested in developing civic leadership skills while collaborating on important efforts with a group of like-minded women, you’re in the right place!

The Junior League is a Highly Respected Organization with an Extraordinary Legacy…

And the Junior League of Knoxville is very proud of that historic reputation, but as society changes, we adapt and evolve. We strive to put our venerable values to work in modern ways; demonstrating our pride and perpetuating our legacy by serving as a powerful voice for action, justice and change throughout East Tennessee. Together, we are working to empower our members to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve our communities through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We are committed to reaching our goal of bringing awareness to women’s safety and education. Will you be a part of this?
