The Junior League of Halifax is an organization of women devoted to improving our community through developing and delivering projects and programs that meet the needs of Halifax! For over 85 years we have worked toward our mission to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. 

The Junior League of Halifax is a Halifax chapter of the Association of Junior League International (www.ajli.org). There are currently 292 Junior Leagues in Canada, the US, the UK, and Mexico, with over 150,000 members combined! Together we are one of the most impactful volunteer organizations in the world, and we are 100 % powered by women!

The current focus of the Junior League of Halifax is to promote increased self-esteem and confidence of girls and women. Our flagship program is Girls Link, a free 5 - 9 week program offered to girls between the age of 9 and 12. This activity-based program provides a safe space for girls to gain confidence through learning about healthy relationships (friendships), leadership, self-care, media literacy, and more!
