Thank you for your interest in joining Junior League of Little Rock (JLLR)! We know there are many options for volunteering in our community and are excited that you have chosen to take a closer look at our organization. Please keep reading to learn more about JLLR.
What is JLLR?
Junior League of Little Rock is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
What makes JLLR different from other volunteer organizations?
JLLR is not only committed to producing strong volunteers, but strong civic leaders. JLLR does this by spending a considerable amount of time, effort, and finances to equip women with the tools to become leaders within the community.
How does JLLR impact our community?
JLLR participates in a wide range of community projects from Stuff the Bus, which provides a year’s worth of school supplies to children in the Little Rock School District deemed most at need, to Nightingales, which provides diversionary activities to parents and caregivers of patients at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and UAMS Family Home. We invite you to visit our website at www.jllr.org/community to learn more about all the ways our members and projects enhance the community.
What does a typical JLLR member look like?
There is no typical JLLR member, as women from all professions, races, ages, and socioeconomic classes are welcome to join. However, there is one fundamental element that unites these women and that is their desire to improve their community.
What can I expect during my New Member year?
As a New Member, you will participate in a course specifically designed to teach you about all the facets of the League and to provide you with insights into the field of volunteerism. You will learn about our community’s needs and how our organization plans and implements projects to address those needs.
