Over one hundred years ago, Mary Harriman founded the Junior League in New York City as a direct result of her work with recent immigrants in the settlement houses there. Her vision was to establish a channel to promote social responsibility and an opportunity to positively impact the community at large.
The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula, Inc. (JLPA•MP) continues this tradition through its ongoing efforts to tackle difficult social issues such as affordable housing, societal violence, homelessness, drug addiction and children at risk.
The JLPA•MP seeks to affect positive change in these and other community issues, through the hands-on work of our volunteers by funding League-sponsored community projects, by making direct grants to not-for-profit organizations whose interests and priorities are consistent with ours and by advocating for those with whom we partner on community projects.
