Junior League of Minneapolis

Promoting Volunteerism Developing the Potential of Women Improving Our Communities


New Members of the Junior League of Minneapolis participate in a New Member Training Program before becoming Active members of the League. These activities and courses are designed to educate new members about the JLM, the Minneapolis community, voluntarism and development, as well as providing opportunities to meet and socialize with other new and Active members.

New Member Year
The 2016-17 New Member class begins in October. The New Member Training Program will occur from October through May. 
The program consists of assignment to a New Member Advisor who will serve as your mentor through your first year; an Orientation/Kick-off Event where you’ll meet your new “core group”; participation in courses and in Junior League of Minneapolis-sponsored events; and other opportunities to learn more about the Junior League of Minneapolis and our community projects.

The intention of this course is to provide an insight into the inner workings of the Junior League of Minneapolis and allow you to develop your potential in voluntarism. The financial requirement for a New Member is approximately $240, including annual dues and a one-time New Member Course fee. It is anticipated that you will spend approximately 50 hours throughout your first year attending new member events, most of which will be held in the evenings and on weekends. 

New Members will be placed on committees in May 2017 and will actively participate on committees, volunteer events and development activities, from fundraisers to projects, at the start of our JLM year on June 1, 2017.  

 The components of the New Member year are:

  • Complete new member registration and submit photo for directory
  • Pay for dues and New Member Course Fee ($240) by September 15, 2016.
  • Attend all new member training courses (topics will be focused on improving the community, promoting voluntarism and personal development)
  • Attend four General Meetings
  • Attend three New Member socials
  • Complete all fundraising and community requirements, activities, and staffing shifts
  • Attend Spring Placement with New Member Advisor
