Eligibility & Admission for Membership
The Junior League of Greater Princeton welcomes all women over the age of 21 who demonstrate a commitment to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities, regardless of race, religion, or national origin. There is no sponsorship requirement to join the JLGP. All women who meet these criteria are warmly welcomed.
Membership in the JLGP provides women with the training and education to assist members in gaining the knowledge, skills and expertise to be effective volunteers and community leaders. JLGP members often have the opportunity to broaden their current skill set in a supportive environment by getting involved in the organization in areas which they have little experience but possess the desire to learn more. JLGP members have access to numerous training and educational opportunities including leadership, community service, communication and fundraising.
Membership in the JLGP does involve time and commitment. If you are willing to learn, grow, and share your expertise working with others, JLGP membership is for YOU! Membership in the JLGP offers a unique and life-long volunteer experience.
The Provisional Year
Women who join the JLGP spend their first year as Provisional members engaged in training to become Active members. The Provisional Course runs October thru May, and kicks off with an informative and fun day of training called “Super Saturday”. After the training modules are complete, the Provisional Class will meet about once a month. In these meetings you will plan, organize and carryout a Provisional project of your class’s choosing. There are also General Membership Meetings (GMM’s), which all provisonals and actives must attend, and Provisionals are also expected to participate in any fundraising activities along with the Active members. Provisional members are non-voting members and are not eligible to hold office.
Note, we now offer two Provisional classes. The first starting in October for the Fall and second in mid-January for the Spring. The requirements for both classes are equivalent.
Active Membership Status
Once you have completed the requirements for Provisional Membership you will approved Board to become an Active Member. Active members have the opportunity to serve on a wide range of League committees. Active members are voting members and are eligible to vote and hold office.
This program is designed for prospective members who missed the cutoff date to join the JLGP but are still interested in the JLGP keeping in contact with them so that they can join the future. If you elect to be part of this program, you can receive updates of League Lines, our newsletter. You may also be able to participate in Community projects, attend social events planned just for “Pre-Provisonals” and also with current JLGP members.
