Community Impact

The Junior League of El Paso, Inc. (JLEP) is a nonprofit organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  For more than 80 years, JLEP has led efforts to improve the El Paso community through numerous projects implemented by our dedicated volunteers and financial support.  JLEP is part of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc., which coordinates 291 Leagues throughout four countries and has a collective membership of over 150,000 women.

While our projects have varied throughout our history, one thing remains the same: The Junior League identifies unmet needs in the community and develops programs to fill those needs. Robust community research provides the foundation for our new program development process, as the League seeks to build collaborations with community stakeholders and issue experts. We welcome participation, conversation, and collaboration with community leaders and change agents interested in working with the Junior League in our endeavors. 

Since 1933 the Junior League of El Paso Inc. has returned over $6 million to the City of El Paso through programs, projects, and community assistance grants. In addition to direct financial support, the Junior League of El Paso commits its members to thousands of training hours to impact the lives of El Pasoans.
