We’re Focused on What Matters Most Right Now in Wilmington
At the Junior League of Wilmington, NC we are continuously evaluating and adjusting our focus based on our community’s most pressing needs. Our work is ever evolving, and we stay busy tackling local issues.
Our current community focus is reducing the rate of human trafficking in Southeastern NC. We believe this can be achieved through educating ourselves and the public, raising awareness of the issue, and supporting survivors of human trafficking in collaboration with local stakeholders.
We also work with NourishNC to provide meals to children in local schools.
Our goal is to help Wilmington women develop civic leadership skills through the work they do with the League, then put those talents to work in the community where it is needed. Our community impact efforts give women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where we live and work.
