Kimberly YoungA Message from the President.

On behalf of the Junior League of Akron, welcome to our website.  I am honored and extremely proud to serve as the 2016‐2018 Junior League of Akron President and am excited for what’s in store for the League’s future. 

My goal for the coming year is to work to make sure all members feel more connected than ever! We have a great pool of talent amongst our members which is highly valued and appreciated.

We have some amazing events and programs brewing for the 2016‐ 2017 League year! The biggest being the Designer ShowHouse featuring our very own JLA house! We have an amazing Steering Committee working to make this the best ShowHouse in the history of ShowHouses! I want to thank the ShowHouse chairs Melissa Adams, Emily Fernandez, Jacqui Ricchiuti, and all of the committee members involved in this undertaking. Also, a very special thank you to our Sustainers who have stepped in to help us with this important Junior League of Akron tradition! We appreciate your guidance and knowledge throughout this process.

On the Community Outreach front, I am excited about our continued partnerships with the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Western Reserve and Blessing in a Backpack for the current JLA focus project initiatives.

Again, it is truly an honor to serve JLA and I am looking forward to a meaningful and memorable League year!


Kimberly Young

JLA President 2016-2018
