League Members at the 2023 Last Comic Standing fundraising event

The JL Sioux Falls Experience

The Junior League of Sioux Falls was formed by a small group of determined women in 1979. Since then we have grown and been instrumental in many community projects in the Sioux Falls region. JLSF was a key player in raising funds to build the Ronald McDonald House from May 1982 to December 1983; we helped to found the local CASA program through grant funding awarded to JLSF in 1995; we collaborated with EmBe in 2011 to establish a Women’s Leadership Program and many other projects along with community partners such as Habitat for Humanity, Call to Freedom, and Lunch is Served.

JLSF Mission

The Junior League of Sioux Falls is an organization of women whose mission is to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training.

Why Join

You’re interested in making a difference. You want to get involved in the community. You want to meet new people and make connections. You want to learn new things.
Does this sound like you?

The reasons women join JLSF are as incredibly diverse as our members. From high-heel wearers to tennis shoes lovers, stay-at-home moms to company leaders and owners, recent college grads to retirees, you’ll find that our members come from all walks of life with varying interests and opinions. Each woman finds a place in League and shares a common goal to make an impact in our community while further developing her own talents and capacities.

We won’t lie, it does take a commitment from you. And like anything else, you get out of League what you put into League, but we promise you’ll find the passion of our members is contagious.

We have rolling recruitment with JLSF, which means you can join at any time. During your first year, you will experience a sampling of all that Junior League of Sioux Falls offers, including meeting members through general meetings, opportunities to get out and serve in the community, participating on a committee with your time and talents, and creating lasting friendships and memories with fellow League members.
