Eligibility for Membership
The Junior League of Hartford, Inc. welcomes all women over the age of 21 who demonstrate a commitment to voluntarism, regardless of race, religion, or national origin. No sponsor or referral is needed to become a member.
The Junior League of Hartford, Inc. is always interested in welcoming new members to our organization.
If you would like to become a member of the Junior League of Hartford, Inc., you will be asked to complete a "provisional" year with a group of other women also considering membership. This is the Provisional Class. In order to become a member of the Junior League of Hartford, Inc. (i.e., an "active member"), you must complete the provisional year.
Traditionally we have had one Provisional Class that ran from September through the following May. However, now we are offering two entry points for membership. The Fall Classes will begin each September and the Spring Classes will start each January. Regardless of which class you start with, your provisional year will be the same number of months and will include the same training opportunities. New Members that begin in January will finish their Provisional Course the following December, with a break during the months of June, July and August.
The Junior League of Hartford, Inc. hosts several information sessions each year, typically, in August and September, for women interested in joining the JLH. These sessions provide more information about the JLH, and offer the opportunity to meet both current members and other women also considering joining the JLH. Please note that while you are not required to attend an information session to join the JLH, we strongly encourage you to consider taking advantage of this opportunity to learn more about us.
