Our Mission

Our Y-Life program is growing! We need financial donations and experts to come in and help with the impact process. Make your contribution now or read more about how you can help!

The Junior League of Gaston County is a member of an International Organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism and to improving the community through effective action and leadership......

The Junior League of Gaston County works with several partner non-profits in Gaston County. One of our main impact initiatives is through the Central YMCA - Y-Life program.



Every year, we've added more professional and talented women to our organization. This year is no exception! Twelve new Provisionals have started the year off with a bang and continue to excel with every new commitment they take on!
