WHO WE ARE
The Junior League of Billings is an organization committed to improving our community by training women to be effective civic leaders. We are currently working to increase learning opportunities and the potential to thrive for families and children in our community. Founded in 1954, the League started many well know organizations, including the Tumbleweed Runaway Program, Venture into the Schools and Wise Wonders, A Montana Children’s Museum.
OUR COMMUNITY FOCUS
We are currently working to increase learning opportunities and the potential to thrive in children and families in the Billings community. We partner with many other agencies in Billings to provide enrichment opportunities for children and families including Wise Wonders, a Montana Children’s Museum, Early Childhood Intervention Services, and the Montana Rescue Mission. Our most recent signature project has been No Cost Laundry Days in partnership with local laundry facilities to allow families the opportunity to clean their clothes, bedding, coats without the burden of payment.
We facilitate leadership training and development for women. For instance, a woman working in healthcare can volunteer in fund development or public relations, broadening her skill set. This is vital to our mission and sets the Junior League apart from other service organizations.
In the past two years, we have held Women’s Leadership Conferences open to our members and the public, bringing in developmental speakers including nationally known speakers, Vicki Clark and Dale Smith Thomas.
