I joined Junior League of Portland three years ago after moving here from another state. I really wanted to meet new women friends and JLP was a great place to do it. I've met really great people and been exposed to a variety of volunteer activities in the community. It has been an inspiring way to get to know Portland.

I have am going into my fourth year of volunteering with the Junior League of Portland and could not be more impressed with the content of nonprofit leadership training that I have received through them. I have expanded my skills in social media for nonprofits and fundraising, as well as built experience planning volunteer and fundraising events which truly make an impact throughout Portland. I truly believe in the JLP's mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and impacting our community.

seeing the impact that we have throughout the Portland community. We've made a difference through our Between The Lines program, H3K health fair and bike ride, leadership training opportunities, and Volunteer In Portland (VIP) Day - as well as in many other events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the awareness of the JLP. As I've talked with people around Portland, most are unaware that who and what the JLP is and does. Then, they are even more surprised that the JLP has been here for 101 years.

After moving halfway across the country, I joined the JLP to meet people and learn my way around Portland. I have gained SO much more. Not only have I accomplished my two original goals, but I've been trained to fully support nonprofits through fund development, event planning, marketing, member relations and so much more! I am also able to volunteer with amazing community organizations that truly impact the Portland community. My experience with the JLP has been nothing but exceptional. If you are a Portland-area woman looking to make an impact and expand your volunteer capabilities, the JLP is the place to be!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the comments I've received from area women, children, and families about the benefits they've received from nonprofits that the JLP previously started and is currently working with.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

tell more people to get involved and join today!
