Continuing a 57-year legacy of service in our community, the Junior League of Hampton Roads is pleased to announce its "Women's Initiative for Success and Empowerment", a program designed to empower women who are confronting economic uncertainty and adversity in order to improve their lives. Known for co-founding the Virginia Living Museum along with the Warwick Rotary Club and for sponsoring the 'Hands-on for Kids’ gallery at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center, the League’s mission is to fill gaps in education and services for women and children and in so doing improve their lives and those of future generations. Our goal is to fill needs that are not being met and focus on projects that have sustainability and a lasting impact.
