The Cause

Developing Women to Do a World of Good

At the heart of our mission is the belief in the transformative power of women’s leadership ​​and our commitment extends to expanding opportunities for women’s leadership in all aspects of life – be it in our community, personal endeavors, or professional spheres.


Today’s members are developing leadership skills through trainings and these current community impact projects:

  • Oasis Community Garden, a 1.7-acre garden located in downtown Ogden created to improve the community by targeting issues of food equity through education and access to fresh produce, and providing a space for the community to gather, grow, teach, and learn.

  • Jr. Junior League of Ogden is a free-of-cost program that prepares young women to be leaders in our community. Girls in 5th-9th grades receive leadership training, positive mentorship, civic engagement, and volunteer opportunities.
