Join the Junior Women's League of Smithfield

Incoming Provisional Class, General Members, Active Sustainers, and Patron Members

2024-2025 League Year Applications are LIVE!

The Junior Women's League of Smithfield (JWL) is excited to welcome you into our dynamic group of women.  Your JWL membership offers opportunities for skill development, leadership, connecting with women from diverse backgrounds, and developing life-long friendships. Most importantly, it provides proper training to become a valuable volunteer to assist our community partners in Johnston County. 

Our 2024-2025 League Year starts on September 1, 2024.  Membership begins with your Provisional year, where you will learn about our organization, the committees who oversee different aspects of our work, the communities we serve, and the mission behind the impactful efforts we focus on throughout the year.   This Provisional year of hands-on training establishes a solid foundation of knowledge with a goal of preparing you to transition into a General Member.

Upon successful completion of your Provisional year, your General Membership can begin.  As a General Member, you will have the opportunity to serve the league in various capacities with committee participation and even hold leadership positions, if you are interested.

Once your application is submitted, along with your $25 non-refundable application fee, a JWL member will reach out using the contact information provided.  This member will formally welcome you to the league and review next steps in your membership journey.  Once this process is completed, you will then submit the remaining $75 membership dues to finalize the application.
