We’re Focused on What Matters Most Right Now in Monterey County

At the Junior League of Monterey County we live in the moment. To us, that means adjusting our focus according to our community’s most pressing needs. Our work is always evolving, and that keeps us on our toes, striving for progress, and preparing to take on whatever comes next.

Our current community goal of empowering women to be engaged civic leaders can be achieved by providing leadership training, partnering with local nonprofits to identify community needs and committing to work on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. So far we have provided training opportunities for our members during our general membership meetings and partnered with community nonprofits for service learning events, and are working to identify a long-term impact project.

Our goal is to help Monterey County women develop civic leadership skills through the work they do, then put those talents to work in the communities that need it. Our current focus of empowering women in our community to be engaged civic leaders gives women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where they live and work.

We’re Creating Fulfilling Leadership Opportunities Throughout Monterey County

The Junior League of Monterey County offers so much more than local volunteering opportunities! Our League of leaders creates real change by advancing social activism-focused projects that directly benefit the communities of Monterey County. By giving women the tools to lead, educating them about their communities’ needs, and helping them put their unique brand of creativity and skill to work, the Junior League of Monterey County is making a big impact on Monterey County.

We’re Transforming Monterey County Communities By Challenging the Status Quo

No matter what we’re currently focusing on, the Junior League of Monterey County’s work centers around improving our local communities through effective action and leadership. We have identified empowering women to be civic leaders as the most pressing issue in our community right now, and we are helping local women take action to resolve it. So far this year, we have partnered with Gathering for Women and Casa de Nocha Buena to provide staffing for their daily operations that support homeless women in our community. We believe that these impactful actions have the power to bring us closer to our goal of civic leadership.
