Community Projects

Since 1919, the Junior League of Omaha has provided hands-on training for its members and service to the community. From day nurseries and the formation of the Community Chest in the 1920s and 1930s, to producing Follies-style shows and starting the Joslyn Art Museum Volunteer Association in the 1940s and 1950s, to co-sponsoring and developing projects in the 1960s and 1970s such as Haven Academy, Kaleidoscope and the Parent Assistance Line (PALs). Projects in the 1980s and 1990s increased learning opportunities for children through the Omaha Children’s Museum, Ident-a-Kid, Healthy Kids-Ready by Six and the Campfire Boys and Girls program.

The Junior League of Omaha has never hesitated to step up and meet its community needs – through its own projects, by providing scholarships to deserving youth and presenting community assistance grants to worthy projects and organizations.
