President's Message

Welcome to the Junior League of DeKalb County!

We have the unique opportunity to celebrate our 85th Anniversary this year. It is a time to celebrate all that we have done to make DeKalb County a better place to live and to build the strong, well-respected organization we are today.

We look to our past to celebrate how far we have come and to give us the strength to believe how much more we can achieve. 

Our challenge as a League is that we must learn how to do more with less. Luckily, the Junior League movement, at times of both prosperity and peril, has a very rich history of doing more with less. Today, the Junior League of DeKalb County is one of 291 Leagues serving across four countries, forming the oldest, largest and most effective women’s volunteer organization. 

This year, as we celebrate our past and look ahead to our future, we remain focused on our mission. We are an organization of women who are committed to promoting voluntarism, to developing the potential of women, and to improving our communities.

We do all this through the effective action and leadership of our trained volunteers. We are strong.  We are innovative.  We are courageous.

We are the Junior League of DeKalb County!

 Join us in our efforts to address the needs of the community and help us develop the potential of all women. You can attend one of our fundraising events, make a donation, or become a member yourself. Or if you would like to collaborate in another way, reach out to us at president@jldekalb.org with your ideas! 

We are proud to be Co-Presidents of the Junior League of DeKalb County! - Rashidah Hasan and Christa Sobon
