Interest Groups

Junior League of Lafayette members serve as representatives on the board of directors of other nonprofit organizations. Junior League members are able to offer advisory support because they are well trained in nonprofit operations. They understand how committees and boards function and work together to achieve a mission. Agencies interested in filling a board position with a JLL member should contact the Community Vice President at League headquarters for more information.
