Community Impact 

We are an organization of nearly 300 Northwest Florida Panhandle women of diverse backgrounds who engage in Community Impact programs dedicated to building our community.

Check out our JLEC Signature Events for fun ways to support our organization and join us in helping the community.

  • Back to the Books Bash

    JLEC partners with the Children's Advocacy Center to provide backpacks filled with school supplies for their clients. 

  • Day for Kids

    JLEC members set up a craft booth and volunteered at the Emerald Coast Science Center for the Boys and Girls Club event. 

  • Food for Thought Outreach 

    JLEC members collected and donated food items and shelving units to stock the Food for Thought pantry. 

  • Child Clothing Project

    Every fall, over 300 children go to our local Target to shop for a new wardrobe, followed by lunch and a party filled with fun activities.

  • Habitat for Humanity

    Members spend the day volunteering at the construction site building a Habitat home for local community members. 

  • Kids in the Kitchen 

    JLEC hosts events to educate and empower children and youth to make healthy lifestyle choices.

Our Mission

The Junior League of the Emerald Coast, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The JLEC's purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
