19 Sep Join – Why Join Junior League
The Junior League is a great place to make friends, as well as connect and network with other women with a shared value of community service. As a training organization, Junior League is a safe place to learn new skills and share yours. There are many ways to contribute to the Junior League of Fort Collins – from getting involved in fundraising to rolling up your sleeves through a Done-in-a-Day project.
The benefits of becoming a member of the Junior League of Fort Collins include:
A central part of our mission is to improve the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. For more than 25 years, the Junior League of Fort Collins has devoted itself to training its members on the leadership skills necessary to serve our community in a number of capacities. To achieve this, the Training Committee frequently organizes activities at general membership meetings. Training conferences are also available to members several times a year through the Association of Junior Leagues International.
Every general meeting of the Junior League of Fort Collins begins with a social hour. During this time, members can enjoy refreshments, talk with other members and hold informal meetings. Members also enjoy a variety of other social opportunities including happy hours, fundraising events, volunteer projects and more.
The very heart of Junior League is volunteering. Members of the Junior League of Fort Collins volunteer for projects that directly benefit the community – whether it’s work driven by League itself like our Career Closet, Imagination Series program or Hunger Initiative partnership, or Done-in-a-Day projects that benefit other local nonprofits.
The Junior League of Fort Collins strives to recognize outstanding achievements by its members throughout the year. This is done by recognizing members during general meetings and on an annual basis at May Celebration, which highlights the accomplishments of League and its members from the past program year.
