In 1977, nine Covington women met to form a service organization dedicated to promoting voluntarism, helping women achieve their potential, and improving their community. In 1999 the Junior Service League of Covington became affiliated with the Association of Junior Leagues International, made up of 296 Junior Leagues throughout the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Mexico. Today the Junior League of Greater Covington (JLGC) is 121 members and 140 sustainers strong, and we are continuing to grow and touch lives in our community. Ours is a powerful history of well-researched, valuable service to our community. Many of our area’s most effective and enduring organizations were originated and/or nurtured by the JLGC, including the Youth Service Bureau, Baby Think It Over, PRIDE Puppeteers, Meals on Wheels, and Covington Head Start.
