The Junior League of Salt Lake City, Inc. is a charitable organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action, education and leadership of trained volunteers.
The Junior League of Salt Lake City (JLSLC) is excited to kick off our annual Friends of the League Campaign! Each donation we receive is a positive reminder that we are working together for change in our community. Your donation, no matter how big or small, will help to continue our mission to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
Current JLSLC community projects include:
Junior League CARE Fair - served more than 3,600 people in the Salt Lake Community
Women Helping Women Clothing Boutique - served approximately 600 women this year since June
Kids in the Kitchen - partnering with the YWCA shelter to provide nutritional education to moms and kids that are staying at the shelter while finding affordable housing.

A Legacy of Excellence
The Junior League of Salt Lake City's Legacy of Excellence award was renamed last year in honor of its first recipient in 2001, Cleone P. Eccles. Each year, the Junior League presents the award to recognize and offer our heartfelt thanks to an individual or organization in our community that exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism through their individual acts, an open heart, and willingness to serve. It is given to a citizen or entity manifesting energy, passion, and a commitment to building a better community. They are mentors for us all to emulate in our personal and professional lives.
This year, we were pleased to present the Cleone P. Eccles Legacy of Excellence award to People Helping People, an organization with whom the Junior League of Salt Lake City has had a long relationship. The mission of People Helping People is similar to the goals of our Women Helping Women program by strengthening families through successful employment with a sustainable wage. People Helping People is dedicated to reducing the number of children living in poverty by teaching low-income women, primarily single mothers, how to earn an adequate income through stable employment that pays a living wage.JLSLC 2013-14 President Kristin Kraus presented the award to People Helping People Executive Director, Kayleen Simmons, at the Masquerade Ball on April 12, 2014.
