Interested in becoming a Member? The JLG provides opportunities for women to develop skills allowing them to be highly effective volunteers.

The JLG’s membership includes executives, community leaders, entrepreneurs, mothers, and professionals and welcomes all women who are at least 21 years of age and interested in making a positive impact in the community.

By joining the Junior League, Members have opportunities to develop their leadership potential, obtain valuable skills, and utilize personal development training while serving the needs of the Greenwich community.

Over the course of the year, women in the new member class will learn about the JLG’s history, its impact in the community and how to become effective volunteers.

Each year, the New Member Class participates in a Road Rally to learn about and see the long-lasting impact of the Junior League of Greenwich. From the Greenwich Pool in Byram Park, to the Skate Park, Kids in Crisis, and Children’s Day School, the JLG has played a major role in designing and establishing a wealth of services for the community.

While the JLG’s role may no longer be directly visible, many of the services that have touched the lives of Greenwich residents were conceived, initiated and implemented by the Junior League.

The JLG administers projects for approximately 2 to 10 years, usually turning them over to an existing agency or organization. Some projects become independent entities.

Each New Member will also participate in project work that provides them with exceptional experience to further their volunteer career. Previous New Member Class projects have included Baby Bundles for Neighbor to Neighbor, Senior Trivia Night, a Re-Launch of Abilis Gifts, and a renovated Art Room for the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich. In May 2018, the women of the new member class will join an organization of nearly 700 women.
