We are mothers, sisters, daughters, cousins, aunts, and nieces. We are full-time working women, stay-at-home moms, recently retired, and college students. We are the women making a difference in the Greater Rochester Area.
The Rochester Junior Women’s Club (RJWC) was founded in 1956. We are a lively and intelligent group of women whose mission statement calls us to promote education, strive to preserve natural resources, work to benefit older adults and support the arts in our community.
Since our inception, the Rochester Junior Woman’s Club has donated more than 1 million hours of community service and raised more than $920,000 to support our local community.
Historically, our members were instrumental in founding many pieces of the Rochester Community and helped it develop into what it is today.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead
