Serving our community is the primary goal of the Junior League of Oklahoma City. The League is proud to partner with numerous nonprofit agencies to provide services and support to the Oklahoma City community. Since 1927, the Junior League has contributed more than a million volunteer hours to the Oklahoma City community.

Between June 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022, JLOC Members volunteered more than 6,610 hours, totaling a value of $197,971.90*, reinvested in the greater Oklahoma City community.

Currently, the Junior League partners with these local agencies:

  • Boys & Girls Club of Oklahoma County
  • Concordia Life Care Community
  • Citizens Caring for Children
  • Dress for Success
  • Girls on the Run
  • Girls Scouts of Western Oklahoma
  • Infant Crisis Services
  • Oklahoma City Zoo
  • Pivot
  • Positive Tomorrows
  • The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center
  • YWCA

In addition to these worthy causes, JLOC has a signature project, Project EmpowHer, committed to ending period poverty in central Oklahoma.

Since 2019, Project EmpowHer has been providing access to menstrual supplies and health education. Members are advancing the conversation around period poverty and partnering with local groups to ensure access to needed products.
