Become A Member

Joining the Junior League of Lynchburg is an incredible way to make a big difference in the community and form lasting friendships.

Develop leadership skills by participating in the League’s committees, conferences, and trainings to learn everything from parliamentary procedure to event planning to fundraising.

Make lifelong friendships working side-by-side on a shared goal with like-minded women.

Get involved with the community through hands-on volunteer opportunities with local organizations like Miriam’s House, Kids’ Haven, Boys and Girls Club, Miller Home, The Listening, Park View Community Mission, The YWCA of Central Virginia, Camp Kum-Ba-Yah, and more!

Who can join?

Membership in the JLL is open to women over the age of 21 who are committed to community service and want to become involved leaders in our community. We welcome women of all races, religions, and national origins. Our members are single women, married women, mothers, and professionals from a variety of backgrounds, some of whom fall into more than one of these groups.

What are the requirements of membership?

Members are expected to commit 8 years to JLL, pay annual dues, attend General Membership Meetings once per month, and participate in JLL community outreach efforts.

The first year of membership in the JLL is referred to as the Provisional Year, during which new members learn about the programs, structure, and governance of the JLL. Beginning in August, it continues through June when Provisional members become Active members.
