Join the Junior League of Raleigh

The Junior League of Raleigh is open to women who have an interest in volunteerism, developing the potential of women and a commitment to improving our community. Membership in the Junior League of Raleigh offers opportunities for leadership, training, skill development, networking and lifelong friendships. Most importantly, membership offers a chance to give back to the community and experience the fulfillment that comes from helping others. Our main purpose is to provide trained volunteer resources to our community partners within Wake County. 
 
Membership begins with a Provisional year, during which you can expect to learn about our League, the community we serve and develop skills to help you transition into active membership. Active membership in the League begins after successful completion of your Provisional year. Requirements for Active membership are based on years of service in the League and are outlined in our bylaws. Each year, Active members have the opportunity to serve the League in an in-League placement or with one of our community partners. Other requirements include attendance at General Membership Meetings, payment of annual dues and support of the League’s A Shopping SPREE! fundraiser.
