Join Us

Women today are busier than ever, but want the chance to build skills, contribute to the community and develop friendships. The Junior League of Phoenix gives women these opportunities in a fun team-oriented effort. Our members also enjoy year round volunteer opportunities, engage in leadership training and make friendships that last a lifetime.


The Junior League of Phoenix (JLP) empowers women through leadership training and development to take action in their community. Our members are leaders in the community and involved in hands-on opportunities to positively impact & better Phoenix - currently we are impacting Phoenix by: 
    • Empowering youth to adopt healthy habits and reverse the growth of childhood obesity in Maricopa County through our Kids in the Kitchen program.

    • Developing the math and science skills of pre-kindergarten children by way of our R.O.C.K.E.T.S. program (Raising Our Children’s Knowledge by Educating Through Science)

    • Due to a generous $30,000 grant over three years to the Valley of the Sun United Way to its Ending Hunger in the Classroom Initiative, over 4,700 students in nine Valley schools will be able to start every school day with a healthy nutritious breakfast delivered right to the classroom.

Who is Eligible?

Total membership in The Junior League of Phoenix exceeds 1,100. Membership is open to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and a commitment to voluntarism. Over 150 women are accepted into the Provisional new member group each Spring.

How to Join

The Junior League of Phoenix welcomes a new class of Provisional members every spring. Each applicant is required to attend an Information Session, which are held early April-June, to be considered for Provisional membership. Once accepted into the Junior League of Phoenix, the Provisional new member course provides education, training about the structure of The Junior League of Phoenix and our role in the community. Provisional members also have the opportunity to participate in League activities, such as volunteer shifts, fundraising events and numerous social activities throughout the year. Successful completion of the Provisional new member course prepares Provisional Members for Active membership, including committee placement the following year.

Transferring into the League

The first step in transferring is to contact your “home” League and request a transfer to the Junior League of Phoenix. We are unable to begin your transfer without authorization from your original Junior League. You must have your Phoenix address in order to begin the membership transfer process.

Once your transfer is initiated with AJLI by your home League, you will be contacted by the Junior League of Phoenix Administrative Assistant. You will then be asked to forward payment to include a $25 transfer fee and pro-rated dues.

Once payment is received, the Chair of the Transfer Committee will be given your information and will contact you. You can also request to receive a placement assignment for the remainder of the League year, but it is not required for in-coming Transfer members.

We look forward to welcoming you to Arizona at social events planned throughout the year for Transfers.
