“As one of the oldest chapters of the Junior League in the nation, we believe that our members are the core of all that we do. From lawyers and doctors to entrepreneurs and nonprofit executives, we have a diverse group of women who are dedicated to making a positive impact in Baltimore,” said Ashley Chalmers, President. “Our recruitment events are just one opportunity to meet women who are connected to our mission of building future leaders of tomorrow.”
The JLB has been actively involved in the Baltimore community for 105 years and recently announced new long-term partnerships with three local non-profits as part of their Women Building Women campaign. Through their work with House of Ruth Maryland, Asylee Women Enterprise, and the Women’s Housing Coalition, JLB members are able to effect positive change in the community.
