Review for Junior League of Pittsburgh, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined the Junior League of Pittsburg 4 years ago. I was looking to give back to the community and train as a volunteer. I have had the opportunity to chair a major league fundraiser and this year, join the Board of Directors. I have met amazing and talented women that I am lucky to work with and even luckier to call my friends. I have had, and continue to have chances to attend trainings that have enabled me to be a professional volunteer.

If I had to make changes to the Junior League, I would make sure the Pittsburgh community had a better understanding of our historical relationships.

Review for Junior League of Pittsburgh, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined the Junior League of Pittsburgh 4 years ago to meet other women in my community. The organization has not only introduced me to these other women; but helped me grow as not only as an individual but also as a leader. I have been able to take on leadership roles within the organization as well as now serving on other boards and commissions. The Junior League of Pittsburgh is a group of women who have huge hearts and are always willing to give back too their community, whether through fundraisers such as the Americna Girl Fashion Show or through helping our with our projects such as Kids-in-the-Kitchen. The Junior League of Pittsburgh works hard to not only give back but train our volunteers so we can encourage their involvement in the community. I think the Junior League of Pittsburgh is a truly beneficial organization for women of all ages and backgrounds. We have a lot of fun and all while helping to improve the Pittsburgh community.
