Become A Member

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. New members complete a Provisional course, which is a comprehensive training series that allows you to learn our League structure and programs while experiencing some of our community service projects and meeting like-minded women.  Provisional courses begin in early August and January.
