The Junior League was founded in 1901 by New York City debutantes aspiring to work in settlement houses. It soon had chapters in other cities including Denver as of 1918. The Junior League of Denver (JLD) has evolved from an exclusive group of Denver’s most elite women to an open membership organization that has responded positively to the civil rights and women’s movements.
