On February 25, 1990, the Junior Service League of North Houston, established in 1983, became the Junior League of North Harris County, Inc. and the 277th Junior League to join The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. (AJLI). In 2005, South Montgomery County was added to our name and we became the Junior League of North Harris and South Montgomery Counties, Inc. There are over 160,000 women in 292 Leagues throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Great Britain.
Sixty-eight women laid the foundation for the future of the Junior League of North Harris and South Montgomery Counties, Inc. They resided in the North Houston area and were devoted to addressing social concerns in our community.
The growing number of charitable partners and an increase in those members who reside in and near The Woodlands sparked the Junior League of North Harris and South Montgomery Counties to rebrand the 25-year-old organization as the Junior League of The Woodlands (JLTW) in 2015. The rebranding included the unveiling of a new logo and branding theme: Same Programs. Same Members. Different Name.
The League’s current membership has grown to over 500 women, consisting of 269 Active, 75 Provisional and 198 Sustaining members.
The rebranding was a defining moment in the League, especially as it coincided with its 25th Anniversary Year. Clearly, the objective of improving communities through effective action and leadership remains the same, along with its service areas, dedicated volunteers and community partners. The only difference is the name.
As we look to the future, we will continue contributing to meeting the needs of our community and our members in ways that are meaningful and enriching. Through the planning process and with the guidance of the Community Advisory Board, we will set our course for the years ahead.
