Thank you for your interest in the JLP!
Founded in 1912, The Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc. (JLP) has contributed numerous hours of volunteer service to the Greater Philadelphia region throughout its history. The impact of JLP volunteer efforts in the community has been widespread and diverse. We invite you to learn more about the JLP and to consider becoming a member.
The Junior League welcomes all women who value our Mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations and communities. The JLP has over 800 members in the Greater Philadelphia Region. The JLP is also a member of Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) with 291 Leagues globally. No membership sponsor is required to join the JLP – just an interest in volunteer service and dedication to our mission and community focus! Any woman 19 years or older residing in Philadelphia County, PA; Delaware County, PA; Bucks County, PA; Montgomery County, PA; Chester County, PA; Camden County, NJ; Burlington County, NJ; or Gloucester County, NJ who meets these criteria and agrees to fulfill the commitments is warmly welcomed.
New Member Commitments
In their first year, New Members of the Junior League of Philadelphia (JLP) will take part in the New Member Program, which provides training to prepare for effective community and League involvement. Upon completion of the New Member Program and fulfillment of all requirements, New Members will be admitted to Active membership.
New Members pay Membership Dues of $210 and attend General Membership and monthly New Member meetings, participate in community volunteer efforts and training sessions, volunteer in the Junior League of Philadelphia Thrift Shop, attend social events, and participate in fundraising initiatives for the League.
The New Member Program runs from September through April, during which New Members, organized into small groups led by a New Member Advisor, are engaged in the League’s service to the community at the same time as learning about the organization itself. In April, those New Members who have successfully completed all requirements are invited to join the League as Active Members.
The enrollment period for the upcoming 2017-2018 League year is now closed. Enrollment for new members is open annually between May and September, and we have scheduled a variety of Recruitment Events that take place prior to the September kick-off event! Our Recruitment Events provide an opportunity to get to know JLP members and leaders, New Member Advisors, and other prospective members. These events are a great time to ask questions, learn about the exciting volunteer and training opportunities available through the Junior League, and hear why we love the JLP!
