Our History

Junior League of Mobile (JLM) was founded in 1925, as the Mobile Charity League. Miss Mary Tilney, a well-known civic and cultural leader, started the Charity League.

In 1931, the Mobile Charity League was incorporated into the Association of Junior Leagues International and officially became the Junior League of Mobile (JLM).

Junior League of Mobile’s members commit their time to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers for the sole purpose of education and charity.
