Junior League of Greenwich

Our History


The Junior League of Greenwich has played a major role in designing and establishing a wealth of services for the community. While the JLG's role may no longer be directly visible, many of the services that have touched the lives of Greenwich residents were conceived, initiated and implemented by the League. The JLG administers projects for approximately two to 10 years, usually turning them over to an existing agency or organization. Some projects become independent entities. Past Junior League of Greenwich projects include:
