The Junior Woman’s Club of El Paso

The Junior Woman’s Club of El Paso is a non-profit, service-based, volunteer organization dedicated to improving the El Paso community.  Founded in 1934, club members devote their time and energy to local charitable organizations and social service agencies through community service projects and fundraising events. The Junior Woman’s Club has an established presence in El Paso and is recognized for their compassion and generosity.

Mission

The JWC’s mission is to provide women with an opportunity to socialize, make friends and make a difference in our community, our environment and in the lives of others.

History

For over 76 years, the JWC has continued to be a productive organization which benefits our community. There have been many changes in projects, membership, age and affiliations; however, our goal remains constant: To give of ourselves to enhance our community wherever and whenever needed. In light of this goal, we take the proceeds of the annual fundraising events re-invest them back into the community through allocations to local service agencies and charities. Every year there are more requests and the JWC does its best to fund as many worthy causes and activities to reach as many El Pasoans as possible. In the past 10 years, nearly $200,000 has been given back to the community!

Service

JWC members also give back tirelessly of their time through volunteer service hours. Since 2009, club members participated in over 24 service projects and clocked over 46,000 service hours. In 2011, JWC launched support of youth service projects through Be the Change! The project helps youth in the community by mentoring, guiding and providing nominal start up funds. Projects supported by JWC yield increased volunteerism in our youth and assistance back to those in need.
