New Members

The first year of membership in the Junior League of Winston-Salem (JLWS) is spent as a New Member. As a group, New Members receive intensive volunteer training, leadership development, and also learn about the history, governance, and structure of the JLWS. Membership can be transferred to any of the nearly 300 International Junior Leagues.

New Members begin their year in August and continue their training through the following May when they become Active members. New Members are required to attend meetings, and participate in community service events throughout the year that will help them prepare for becoming an Active member. They must also meet certain financial commitments and successfully complete the New Member Training Course.
