We’re Empowering the Next Great Civic Leaders…

And we’re already making a powerful impact by leading change within Alachua County communities! To us, becoming a civic leader is all about understanding that local efforts have a global reach, and it all begins with creating local leadership opportunities that put women’s skills and passion to work right here in Gainesville and surrounding communities. If you’re interested in developing civic leadership skills while collaborating on important efforts with a group of like-minded women, you’re in the right place!

The Junior League is a Highly Respected Organization with an Extraordinary Legacy…

And the Junior League of Gainesville is very proud of that historic reputation, but as society changes, we adapt and evolve. We strive to put our venerable values to work in modern ways; demonstrating our pride and perpetuating our legacy by serving as a powerful voice for action, justice and change throughout Alachua County. Together, we are working to empower our members to address food insecurity here in our own communities. Gainesville women will lead this important initiative. Will you be one of them?


Join the movement that’s dedicated to creating change, empowering leaders, and impacting the communities of Alachua County.


Become a Driving Force of Change Within Your Community

We accept new members twice per year, and our application period is currently closed but will open again this fall. When new members apply, they are invited to join a one year class that provide them with the tools and information they’ll need to play a crucial role in Junior League of Gainesville’s current community goal of providing food and resources to area children to reduce the number of food insecure families and hungry children in Alachua County.
