We are so excited to host over 100 women entrepreneurs for the Illuminate conference hosted by Vend Raleigh at our Center for Community Leadership (the CCL) on Friday, October 3, 2014. The CCL, located at 711 Hillsborough, offers training space and programming for League members and community agencies. Since 1930, the Junior League of Raleigh has contributed more than $5 million to community projects and programs. The League reaches out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to volunteerism.
The Junior League of Raleigh offers busy women multiple exciting and flexible community placements as well as opportunities to serve in leadership and board roles. Your League experience is your own. Take advantage of additional development opportunities such as the Capital Leadership Initiative, which is an award-winning program that provides women in our community with leadership training that is applicable to the workplace, volunteer opportunities and at home.
