The Junior League of Columbus is an amazing organization that develops the potential of women through community impact, volunteerism, and leadership development.
The JLC organizes fundraising and community projects, such as Bridging the G.A.P. (Guide, Advocate, Provide) which supports youth aging out of the foster care system and Adopt-a-Backpack for Children (ABC) Project through which we have provided 55,000 supplies-filled backpacks since 1999.
The Junior League of Columbus manages the Kelton House Museum & Garden, which once served as a stop on the Underground Railroad, providing award-winning programs and tours educating the public on life in the second half of the 19th century with a unique view of urban life and decorative arts.
