Through the Junior League, empowered women can develop their leadership potential and skills and directly impact the Greensboro community, making meaningful connections and friends along the way. The Junior League of Greensboro is the organization for you if you are interested in making a difference in your community, developing your leadership potential, and surrounding yourself with an international organization of like-minded, motivated women.
Our League is comprised of around 200 active members and over 600 sustaining members. Membership is open to women of all races, religions, and national origins who share in our commitment to voluntarism.
We start a Provisional course once a year, beginning in late summer. However, we accept applications on a rolling basis, so new members can join at any time throughout the year and make up for subjects that were covered prior to membership application.

Hear what our members are saying about the League:
Kate, Member Since 2016
“I joined the League as soon as I moved to Greensboro because I wanted to be a part of a group of like-minded women who I could be friends with. I have made so many wonderful friends through JLG, and feel proud of how we work hard to intentionally seek out the needs of the Greensboro community and help make a difference.”
Margo, Member Since 2016
“I must admit that I was initially hesitant to seek JLG membership because it’s generally thought of for younger women. Working on the Leadership Development committee was an awesome first year experience so I couldn’t be happier about my decision to join! Volunteerism, personal growth, and extraordinary new friendships are priceless.”
Jessica, Transferred from JL-NYC to JLG in 2018
“The JLG understands the power of community involvement and empowers women by giving them opportunities to improve the lives of those around them while growing personally and professionally.”
