JLT dates back to 1929 and the establishment of the Junior Welfare Association of Tuscaloosa with the current title adopted in 1979. Today, more than one hundred women are active members of JLT, with a sustainer network of nearly three hundred dating back to the 1970s. The membership is open to women of all races, religions, and national origins, who demonstrate an interest in and a commitment to voluntarism.
