President’s Message

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Junior League of Greater Princeton!


It is my pleasure to invite you to explore our website to learn more about our mission, community programs, membership opportunities and fundraising events. The Junior League of Greater Princeton 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.  We have over 200 active and sustaining members and we welcome new members to join each year.  We are one of 291 Junior Leagues in four countries and are more than 140,000 women strong.  Collectively, we constitute one of the largest, most effective volunteer organizations in the world.


Our League proudly has served the Greater Princeton area since 1921. As we enter our 98th year of service and approach our centennial anniversary, we remain committed to serving at-risk women and children in Mercer and Bucks counties through our member-led community programming and strong partnerships in our community. In addition, we continue to offer our members enriching training and development opportunities in support of our mission.


Whether you are a woman considering membership, an agency looking for support or someone interested in investing in our future, we would love to hear from you.  Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Junior League of Greater Princeton.  I am honored to serve as the League’s President this year and am looking forward to a wonderful year ahead!


Warmest regards,

Kathryn Tharney
