I joined Junior League of Sioux Falls about five years ago. In that time, I have attended a Leadership Traing program, traveled to conferences in New York and New Orleans, and been involved on several different levels. I truly feel that this organization is unique. With women working together and empowering eachother our community is stronger. I feel honored to have been part of this organization and have enjoyed several diverse friendships as well.

The Great!

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

As a working mother, I also feel that I am modeling to my daughter the importance of "giving back." When I joined I never even knew what Junior League was...and now I can't imagine my life without it.

Because our project focus changes with the community needs, there is always variety and different ways to be involved.

I joined the Jr League of Sioux Falls over 28 years ago in order to meet other women who wanted to work together to make a difference in Sioux Falls. Since that time, I have watched JLSF tackle issues and implement major projects benefitting women, children and families such as Ronald McDonald House, Race Against Breast Cancer and CASA. The membership has remained committed to finding projects and activities to participate in that strengthen our community and make it a great place to live. JLSF is a well recognized and respected organization in Sioux Falls!

The JLSF is an organization of Women that give back to our community. We have started several noteable projects in Sioux Falls, such as, the Rondald McDonald House, CASA and Race Against Breast Cancer. We have colabareted on many others such as Child's Voice and the Compass Center. It is heart warming to be able to look back at all the wonderful things this organization does for it's members with leadership skills and meeting the needs of the community through projects. As a bonus, I have had the privilege to meet so many wonderful, fun, talented and gifted women. Women that I will have as friends the rest of my life. We are an organization that not only does great things in our own city, but we are an organization that continues to make gobal change.

The Junior League of Sioux Falls gave a donation to support the autism program at Children's Care Hospital & School. As an employee of CCHS I saw the impact such generosity had on the children we served. I joined Junior League because of the difference this amazing group of women make in the community. The organization has taught me leadership skills I use in my career and in other volunteer areas within the community. It is also so energizing and refreshing to spend time with such great women.

I joined JLSF in 2006 just after relocating to Sioux Falls. I found a wonderful group of women, of all ages, who were serving our community in a variety of ways. The unique part of JLSF is that you learn leadership skills that can be applied to your career, to civic opportunities to lead or to service in other non-profits. Learning leadership while serving others is a powerful way to meet people that become lasting friends. For me, it was a great way to not just meet new people but also to learn about the needs in Sioux Falls and the great organizations that served those needs, or better yet, how JLSF could serve an unmet need in the community. It's been a blessing to watch women with a variety of skill sets and talents come together to serve others and achieve great things!

The Great!

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

recruit more members to help it continue to grow and serve Sioux Falls in a greater way.

I joined the Junior League of Sioux Falls in 1985. This organization has been a great training ground for me in leadership and community service. I have been mentored by incredible women of all ages. This has been an environment where if feels safe to try new things and step out of my comfort zone. Yes it takes time. Yes, there are challenges. Yes, I have learned much about myself and others!

As a member of the Junior League of Sioux Falls, I am truly humbled by my experiences volunteering in our community. When a need arises, our members roll-up their sleeves and dig in with energy and enthusiasm. At our recent fundraiser - Pearls, Pumps, Purses on the Prairie, everyone worked tirelessly organizing, preparing, and helping at the event which was well-attended. Funds raised will be used towards our next project - a Women's Leadership Program which will be a joint collaboration with our local YWCA.

The Great!

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

Watching children and their families learn to prepare nutritious meals and snacks, and learning more about the diversity in our community. I have also seen the benefits in more needy familes being able to stay at the two new Ronald McDonald Houses in Sioux Falls SD.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get more volunteers to join, retaining them as long-time Junior Leaguers and training them to become leaders with local organizations.

I’m proud to be a member of the Junior League of Sioux Falls — a group of women with huge hearts who give back to their community, whether through our done-in-a-day projects, such as Kids in the Kitchen — or our major projects, such as the Ronald McDonald House, the Race Against Breast Cancer or CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). The Junior League of Sioux Falls trains its member volunteers, trains its leaders and encourages women’s involvement in their community. Sioux Falls is fortunate to have this non-profit's help over the years.

The Great!

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

understanding the importance of setting "memorandums of understanding" for strong working relationships and defining mutual consideration of both partners' needs.

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

find someone who could help us write grants. We've got upcoming projects that need funding!
