JOIN THE JLB
Founded in 1910, The Junior League of Brooklyn (JLB) has been serving the needs of the Borough for 107 years. The impact of JLB through service projects to women and children throughout this community has been widespread and diverse. We are a 100% volunteer-run, non-profit organization of women, dedicated to making this Borough a better place to live. We provide our members with structured leadership training through hands on volunteer experiences. The Junior League welcomes all women who value our Mission. The JLB is also a member of Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) with 292 Leagues globally. No membership sponsor is required to join the JLB - just an interest in volunteer service and dedication to our mission and community focus!
HOW TO JOIN
To be eligible for membership, an applicant must be at least 21 years of age. Women interested in joining the JLB are asked to attend an Information Session where they will have a chance to meet current JLB volunteers and learn about their experiences in the League. After attending an Information Session, potential members are invited to apply and join our Provisional training program. These programs provide training to prepare for effective community and League involvement. Upon completion of the program and fulfillment of all requirements Provisionals will be admitted to Active Membership.
Information sessions for the next Provisional Class (to begin Jan 2018) will be scheduled to occur during the Fall of 2017. Dates for upcoming Information Sessions will be confirmed soon.
The purpose of the Provisional Course is to prepare volunteers for service in the community in support of the Junior League of Brooklyn's mission to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Successful completion of the course demonstrates a commitment to voluntarism and the standard of excellence that the Junior League of Brooklyn seeks to uphold.
Provisionals are expected to:
- Pay their dues prior to the start of the Provisional Class
- Attend all Provisional Classes (schedule TBD will be ready at Information Session)
- Attend General Membership Meetings (as scheduled)
- Invited to attend any JLB wide training sessions
- Complete Provisional project with classmates (including participation in group meetings)
