What is the Junior League of Northern Virginia?
The Junior League of Northern Virginia, Inc. (JLNV) is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
Which organizations do we partner with, and volunteer with, in the community?
Our community initiatives focus on healthy eating, active living, and access to healthy food options. Partners in the community include local farmers markets, Arcadia Farms, Bridges to Independence, the Lorton Community Action Center, and more.
How do I get involved?
We are a group of women of all backgrounds, ages, professions, ethnicities, and religions. JLNV is committed to remaining a diverse and inclusive organization and is welcoming to all women who have a passion for voluntarism. You must be at least 21 years old to join and must reside in the Washington, D.C., Metro area.
JLNV accepts members twice a year – once in the summer and again in the winter. All new members will be a part of a New Member class, which will give New Members the opportunity to immerse themselves in the League and learn more about our history and the work we are doing in the community. The New Member Class requires a commitment on the part of the New Member to fulfill requirements, but it is also an exciting experience!
To get involved with the JLNV, you can apply here. Once you submit your application and payment, you will be contacted by our New Member Chair, who will provide you further information on Orientation Training dates.
