President’s Message

Welcome to the Junior League of Fort Myers website! Thank you for stopping by to check out who we are and what we are up to in our local Southwest Florida community!

We recently celebrated our League’s 50th anniversary, which was a milestone we were all humbled and honored to reach.  Now, after more than 50 years of volunteerism in Southwest Florida, we are paving the path to our next 50 years with a new community partner and a new focus to our community impact program.

This year we will be launching a brand new program our League has developed, working with middle school aged girls at the Boys and Girls Club of Fort Myers. As our members have been lucky enough to learn and grow under the guidance of strong women leaders, so we will serve as those role models, helping to inspire the next generation of women in our community. We will provide programming on a weekly basis, doing our best to teach these young women more about our community, while instilling within them a sense of their own self- worth.

We are also proud to be an organization that develops the potential of our women volunteers as part of our mission. We send our members to Association of Junior League sponsored leadership conferences, provide in-house trainings, and utilize training opportunities in our own community. The leadership of our trained volunteers allows us to more effectively improve our community. I am so excited to serve as the President of our organization, leading us on a journey that will help us all to continue to be a force for good in our community!
