We are the Junior League of Yakima

Above all else, our goal is to promote and perpetuate social change in the Central Washington communities that will benefit most from it. By empowering women and providing valuable leadership training, we are giving local women the tools to get involved, put their talents to work, and positively impact the Yakima Valley.
