President's Message



Valdosta Junior Service League

                                                                                                   “In League to Serve”

 In 1936, forty-five women formed an organization that has brought lasting change to our community. The Valdosta Junior Service League (“VJSL”) is a group of unique and diverse women who have spent the last eighty-seven (87) years serving Valdosta and Lowndes County. To remain relevant in this dynamic world, our League has grown and continued to transform. We strive to be in tune with our community’s needs and focus our volunteer efforts. The VJSL organizes service projects, participates with local charity organizations, spreads awareness and fundraises for breast cancer, and hosts fun events that bring our community together. The VJSL is proud to maintain the Converse-Dalton-Ferrell House, placed on the National Historical Register in 1983, and call it our home.

The purpose of the Valdosta Junior Service League is to improve cultural, welfare, recreational, civic, and educational conditions in our community.  We promote volunteerism and cooperate with other national, state, and local organizations performing similar services.  

I feel blessed to serve as the VJSL President for the 2023-2024 League Year. We represent a legacy of women who joined this organization specifically to serve others in a variety of ways. “ As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” 1 Peter 4:10

I pray that the VJSL will continue the legacy of positively impacting our community, promoting volunteerism, and developing the potential of women. On behalf of the VJSL, thank you for visiting our website. I invite you to learn more about our organization by exploring our website and social media, and  welcome you to join us at one of our events or by becoming a community partner.

Yours in Service,

Val Gallahan

2023-2024 VJSL President
