Women Building Better Communities

Serving the Virginia Peninsula Since 1956

A 60-Year Tradition


We are Junior League of Hampton Roads! We are an active group of trained volunteers who are committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve on the Virginia Peninsula. The Junior League of Hampton Roads reaches out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in voluntarism. Members are trained for leadership and effective volunteer services in management, communications, public policy, advocacy and other areas through workshops and hands-on experiences.


Let's Get WISE!

Continuing a 60-year legacy of service in our community, the Junior League of Hampton Roads is excited to lead the Women’s Initiative for Success and Empowerment (WISE), a program designed to empower women who are confronting economic uncertainty and adversity.  The initiative’s mission is to fill gaps in education and services for women and children that will empower them to improve their lives and those of future generations. The JLHR’s goal is to fill needs that are not being met and to focus on projects that have sustainability and a lasting impact.
