President’s Message

Uta Steinhauser, JLGP President

Welcome to the Junior League of Greater Princeton! I am honored to serve as the President of the League for the 2023-2024 League year. The Junior League of Greater Princeton (JLGP) is an organization of women whose mission is to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training. As an organization of over 200 members strong, the JLGP works to develop our members through training, mentorship and hands on community volunteering.   

Our League was founded as the Junior League of Trenton in 1921, became the Junior League of Central Delaware Valley in 1974 and the Junior League of Greater Princeton in 1991. Our members and service area are in Mercer County, NJ and Bucks County PA. The JLGP is part of a larger network of Leagues that are organized under the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) which encompasses over 125,000 members in 295 Leagues in six countries. Talk about collective impact!

The Junior League of Greater Princeton’s impact focus area is food security. Our community impact work is built around this issue with a goal of creating measurable change over the next decade. Food security for a household means access by all members, at all times, to have enough food for an active, healthy life. Approximately 8.3% of New Jersey residents and 9.2% of Pennsylvania residents were food insecure (USDA, 2019-2021). Too many of our neighbors do not have enough food, especially nutrient dense food. The JLGP is passionate about addressing this issue through community service, advocacy and member education.
