The Junior Welfare League of Beaumont was organized in 1937 with a membership of 38 and in 1946 became a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc.

The Junior League of Beaumont is comprised of a diverse group of women with the common desire to make Beaumont a better place to live. The league has not only provided volunteer and financial assistance to numerous organizations in need but has been the driving force in establishing community assistance, historical and cultural as well as educational organizations that are still in operation today. Some of these include: John J. French Museum, Beaumont Heritage Society, Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Leadership Beaumont, Jefferson Theatre, Southeast Texas Food Bank, Southeast Texas Family Resource Center, and Beaumont Children's Museum.
