Through the League, women interested in empowering women and children in need can also develop their leadership potential and skills, while directly making an impact in the Greensboro community and making connections and friends along the way.
Our League is comprised of around 200 active members and over 600 sustaining members. Membership in The Junior League of Greensboro is open to women of all races, religions, and national origins who share in our commitment to voluntarism. If you’re interested in making a difference in your community, developing your leadership potential, and want to surround yourself with an international organization of like-minded, motivated women, the Junior League of Greensboro is the organization for you.
We start a Provisional course twice a year, one beginning in early summer and one beginning in early winter. To learn more about joining League, please contact Holly Holbrook (2018–2019 Provisional Chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Become a Member page.
