About Us

Our Mission
The Junior Woman's Club of Loudoun (JWCL) was founded over 65 years ago to unite women in promoting the welfare of our community and to enrich its members intellectually and culturally. Today, the club still strives to meet these goals by encouraging its members to develop their talents and interests through a variety of service projects and fundraisers. Membership in the JWCL provides an opportunity for volunteer work in a group that derives much of its strength from "unity in diversity" (the motto of the General Federation of Womens Clubs (GFWC), our international organization). We are dedicated to developing the talents, abilities, and skills of each individual who participates. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives and include artists and accountants, IT professionals and professional moms. All are united by the desire to be a positive influence on our community and our world. In addition to our community service efforts, JWCL sponsors membership and social events throughout the year to give clubwomen a chance to get to know each other better and learn more about the group. JWCL is affiliated with the General Federation of Woman's Clubs (GFWC), the oldest and largest all women volunteer organization in the world. We are also a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs of Virginia (GFWC-VA), Northern District. Federation allows our club's influence to be felt at the local, regional, national, and even international levels.

JWCL is always open to new members and new ideas. There are many levels of participation and invested time, and membership can be adapted to your personal talents, demands, and interests. Please explore our Web site to find out more about who we are and what we have to offer. We also invite you to attend a meeting at any time to meet us face-to-face and find out more about the club.


Our History
The Junior Woman's Club of Loudoun, Inc. (JWCL) was formed by a group of fifteen women in November of 1950. The intent of the original group was to unite young women to promote the welfare of the community and enrich the members culturally and intellectually. The club was sponsored by the Woman's Club of Loudoun and JWCL received its charter in April 1951 from the Virginia Federation of Woman's Clubs. The group is affiliated with the General Federation of Woman's Clubs, the world's largest all women volunteer organization.
