"Hands down, Junior League is one of the most effective organizations training women to be engaged as civic leaders. I have meet women from all over the country and felt extremly tied to the collective work happening within the Michigan Junior Leagues. There are not many spaces that give women the opportunity to take calculated risks and learn in a very experiential way. This has been the best part of my Junior League experience. As a member, you choose to us your own unique skills and talents to help your community. There have been ways that I have longed to learn to better myself and become a better leader and Junior League has helped me cultivate those passions. I don't think any woman that becomes a member can say that she hasn't grown in some unique way."
