Junior League of Duluth Membership Class

The Junior League of Duluth is an organization of great women who have been positively impacting the Twin Ports community for over 90 years.  The Junior League of Duluth women helped start the Human Development Center, the Polinsky Rehabilitation Center, North Country Ride, First Witness, and Safe Haven.  Members worked as docents at Glensheen and the Tweed Museum of Art as well as staffed the CARE office at City Hall.  Other programs designed to target elementary age children in the region have included: Seeds for Peace, Good Touch-Bad Touch and Kids in the Kitchen.

Now is the time for you to make an impact in the Twin Ports community!  A few hours a month spent with a diverse group of women really can and does make a difference.

I agree - even though the JL's are the villains in The Help - the Duluth chapter is great!

Wondering what the financial obligation is - yearly dues?

@ Carla: Thanks!
@heysme: Dues your first year are $35; after that $100/ year.  The dues as well as the money raised at Festival of Trees help us support local non-profits.

I think the Junior League does some nice things in our community. I had a great time helping to build Playfront (both times) with Junior Leaguers - it strikes me as a very down-to-earth, practical and influential women's fraternal organization.  (Language/grammar police: is is still called a fraternal organization when it's a women's group?) 

On a personal note, I think it would be great to start infiltrating some PDD-ettes into the organization to bring in new blood, all the while furthering our nefarious campaign for complete world domination.  (I just watched the Stepford Wives last night, so maybe I'm a little off-kilter today.)

Grammar Police says, nope, that'd be "sororal."

I think Junior League is a valuable leadership organization that would benefit any woman interested in improving her community. Junior League offers excellent training in leadership, organization, civic involvement, etc. Please consider joining, and contact Jen with questions or comments. I promise it will be nothing like the club you saw in "The Help."
