Junior Service League of North Houston, established in 1983, became Junior League of North Harris County, Inc on February 25, 1990. In 2005, South Montgomery County was added to our name. Our organization rebranded in 2015 to the current name of Junior League of The Woodlands (JLTW).
Throughout our history, our mission has always remained the same. We are an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. JLTWs purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
In the spirit of giving, JLTW, Inc. has established the Anniversary Gift Program to provide assistance to a local non-profit community organizations in need. Every 5 years, JLTW awards an Anniversary Gift that will leave a lasting impact on our community and act as a living legacy.
