President's Message



Welcome to the Junior League of DeKalb County! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the League and our mission!

Since 1934, the Junior League of DeKalb County has worked to build a better DeKalb County by developing solutions and creating positive change in our community.

Beginning in 2016 the Junior League of DeKalb County has adopted a new issue area focused on promoting the development of early reading and language skills. This year we are excited to be forming new partnerships and getting to work tackling this issue through collaborations, direct service and advocacy.

As a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International we are a part of one of the oldest, largest and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, and like our sister Leagues, the Junior League of DeKalb County is committed to building a community of women leaders who are empowered to impact our community in the coming year and beyond.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated and diverse membership of women who believe in our mission and recognize that when we take the lead, develop the potential of women and work to promote voluntarism, we can improve our community and have an immeasurable impact on the lives of those around us. Our Active and Sustaining members continue to implement their Junior League of DeKalb County leadership training by serving on numerous community boards as well as leading businesses, nonprofits and civic organizations.

To all our supporters we say thank you! Without your support, we could not affect change and improve the community through the continued development of effective volunteer leadership. Whether you are interested in becoming a member, attending an event, or giving us your support, please explore our website and contact us for more information.

I am excited and humbled to be leading this organization in 2016 – 2017, building our membership, building our brand and building community. I look forward to an amazing year!

With Warmest Regards,

Suzanne Success Osborne
