JLE-NS provides women a unique forum to develop personally and professionally while making a difference to individual lives and transforming communities.

The Junior League of Evanston-North Shore welcomes all women who are committed to making a difference in the community – and want to have fun doing so. Our membership is composed of a wonderful variety of North Shore women – we are single and married, full-time professionals and stay-at-home moms, recent college graduates and retirees.
