Interested in joining the Junior League of Fresno?

We would love to share with you the things that Junior League of Fresno does for our community and what Junior League can do for you!

Joining JLF has a multitude of benefits:

  • Meet like-minded women. JLF is comprised of over 100 members with diverse backgrounds, interests, and professions.
  • Make an impact in the community. JLF volunteers support local nonprofits in a variety of hands-on opportunities.
  • Hone and expand your skillset. JLF offers members a variety of leadership training opportunities.
  • Build lasting relationships. JLF connects members while volunteering, attending social events, and through committee work.

JLF Membership is a Three-Step Process:

Step 1: Attend a New Member Informational Meeting
Prospective members must attend one informational meeting to learn about the JLF.

Step 2: Complete the New Member Application Online & New Member Agreement Form before August  31. The New Member Application and New Member Agreement Form will go directly to our Membership Chair, Amber Allred. Once the application is received, she will be in contact with you. 

Step 3: Complete the New Member Course
The New Member course is a required period of orientation that begins in August and concludes in December. The New Member course provides education and training about the structure of the Junior League, along with its history and role in the community.

Successful completion of the New Member course prepares a woman for active membership in one of the many Junior League committees. It takes commitment to meet the obligations, but the rewards include giving back to the Fresno community through various projects, fundraisers, training and education opportunities, and making lifelong friendships with other League members.
