The Junior League of Edmonton is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We provide the following volunteer opportunities for like-minded women in Edmonton:
Done in a Day (DIAD) are community projects that assist local organizations with hands-on, meaningful projects that make an impact within our community that can be done in one day or less. They usually take place in conjunction with our monthly meetings. DIADs usually support community projects of our Community Assistance Fund recipients but also local nonprofit organization’s in need of group volunteer support. The JLE invites you to come and join us for our next general meeting. Get to see how our organization works, meet some dynamic and energetic women while supporting your community.
See our calendar for the next DIAD. We hope to see you there!
We have three major fundraisers that go to support our Community Projects and our work in the Edmonton community. Each event is made possible by the help of our members and volunteers.

- Experience working large and fun events
