The Junior League of Memphis (JLM) welcomes women of all backgrounds, who have an interest in voluntarism, a commitment to community service, and an interest in developing their potential as a volunteer and leader in the Memphis community.
A member’s first year is also known as the “Provisional” year, which is designed to provide a meaningful experience to learn more about the Junior League of Memphis’ history and structure, develop your potential as a leader, gain valuable skills to equip members to be effective volunteers and connect you with both like-minded women and other organizations committed to improving the Memphis community.
The Provisional experiences includes: small group meetings, training sessions, and hands-on volunteer opportunities that support our mission, and league functions including general membership meetings, fundraisers and socials.
