President’s Welcome

Welcome to the Junior League of Omaha!

On behalf of our members, I invite you to explore our website and learn about our mission.

Lisa Buckentine, Junior League of Omaha President, 2022 – 2024

In 1919, a small group of women strategically linked vision, social capital and action to address issues on the front lines. Thus, the Junior League of Omaha was formed to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training.

During the last 104 years, we have provided more than 1.4 million volunteer hours and $2 million to community programs and scholarships.

Today’s Junior League of Omaha members continue to live this legacy of leadership and service. We are addressing unmet needs in our community, focusing on hunger and access to healthy foods. We are empowering women by hosting personal, professional and leadership development programming for League members and the community-at-large.  We are changing our story by making room for all women at the table and giving each woman a voice to be heard.

At the Junior League of Omaha, we know we are stronger together than we are as one.

Please join us in fulfilling our mission through making a donation or joining our membership. See what we have been up to by browsing our past annual reports. Your support ensures we continue to improve the Omaha community for another 100 years.

In gratitude,


Lisa Buckentine
President 2022 – 2024
