How to Join

JLE-NS provides women a unique forum to develop personally and professionally while making a difference to individual lives and transforming communities.

The Junior League of Evanston-North Shore welcomes all women who are committed to making a difference in the community – and want to have fun doing so. Our membership is composed of a wonderful variety of North Shore women – we are single and married, full-time professionals and stay-at-home moms, recent college graduates and retirees. However, we all have one thing in common: we are women with a desire to volunteer and make a difference.

The Junior League is a rich, well-rounded volunteer experience. As a member you can:

* Make Connections – meet other dynamic, talented, dedicated, and fun North Shore women

* Find Flexibility – Have the opportunity to create a volunteer experience that works with your schedule and lifestyle.
