Become a Member

Thank you for your interest in joining The Junior League of Albuquerque! Twice a year (Fall and Spring), the JLA trains groups of new members to be effective volunteers and leaders in our community.


Provisional Members complete a comprehensive training series that allows them to learn about our League structure and programs, as well as experience some of our community programs first-hand. The Provisional series includes meetings, educational courses, work shifts, a community project, and attending League functions such as general membership meetings.
