Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. For 88 years, The Junior League of Tampa has served as a catalyst for change within our community. The Junior League of Tampa has been committed to building a healthier, more educated and safer community for Tampa Bay’s children and their families. The 1,800 members currently provide more than 75,000 hours of service to the community each year, while spending nearly $260,000 annually on JLT projects and has contributed over 60,000 volunteer hours.
