Leadership

The Association of Junior Leagues International Inc. (AJLI) is 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. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. Junior Leagues reach out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism. The Junior League of the Shoals takes its commitment to voluntarism seriously. Over the more than 70 years, the organization, operating as the Muscle Shoals District Service League, has given 300,000 hours of hands-on volunteer work and over $3.1 million back to the community. Each active member gives 40+ hours of community service per year with an established local charity or non-profit organization. Many sustaining members continue volunteering with their organizations even after their six-year active membership period is over.
