Junior League of the Quad Cities is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
We are Junior League
Junior League of the Quad Cities has been contributing to the Quad Cities community since 1921, when we began as the Junior Board of the Visiting Nurses Associations. The organization later became the Junior Board of Davenport. We affiliated with the Association of Junior Leagues International in 1981.
Women building better communities. That’s the Junior League. The Junior League has been a driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live.
Junior League members, reflecting a wide range of backgrounds, interests and professional pursuits work together to identify unmet needs and work to make change for the better. Time and time again, the Junior League is among the first organizations to step up to the plate and tackle the community’s biggest challenges.
We are a part of an international organization, The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc., which includes over 155,000 women in 292 Leagues in four countries who make a difference in their communities every day through their volunteer efforts.

AJLI is governed by a 20-member Board of Directors, all of whom are members of the Junior Leagues in their communities.
