How To Join

Thank you for your interest in joining the Junior League of Wilmington. Each year, the Junior League of Wilmington trains groups of new members (Provisionals) to be more effective volunteers and leaders in the community. Provisionals complete a comprehensive training series that allows you to learn our League structure,  programs, and  experience some of our community service projects. The  provisional course begins in September.  You are invited to join us for League recruiting events throughout the year, community impact projects, and general membership meetings.
