Junior League New Member Open House set for Oct 2

The Junior League of Greenwich is hosting a new member Open House for the fall 2018 class on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at 7:00pm for prospective members to learn more about membership, meet current members and become part of the legacy.

The open house will take place at Junior League headquarters, 231 East Putnam Ave, Greenwich.

Registration for the New Member Class is now open and the first class will be held on Tuesday, October 23 at 7:00pm at Junior League headquarters.

Interested in becoming a member? The Junior League provides opportunities for women to develop skills enabling them to be highly effective volunteers who create community change.

By joining the Junior League, members have the opportunity to develop their leadership potential, obtain non-profit training, and access personal development training while serving the Greenwich community.

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.

Over the course of the year, women in the New Member Class will learn about the Junior League’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.

Each New Member will also participate in a project that provides her with exceptional experience to further her volunteer career. Previous New Member Class projects have included Baby Bundles for Neighbor to Neighbor, Senior Trivia Night, a relaunch of Abilis Gifts and a renovated Art Room for the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich.

In May 2019, the women of the New Member Class will join a 60-year tradition as part of an organization of over 600 women who share a commitment to community service and leadership development.
