Joining JLKD

JLKD accepts New Members throughout the year (pausing enrollments in April and May). Our rolling admissions program allows New Members to quickly and effectively transition into the League, meet new people and gain hands-on volunteer experience at times that fit into their schedule.

To join JLKD as a New Member, you will need to complete the New Member curriculum, pay dues and complete meeting, volunteering and fundraising requirements.

The New Member curriculum includes:

  • An in-person orientation offered at regular intervals throughout the year.
  • An online course designed to help you learn the ins and outs of the League at your own pace.

Once you complete the New Member requirements, you will be instated as an active member!

You will have a team of people to help you meet these requirements and ensure your New Member experience is memorable, impactful, and fun!

Members must be at least 21 years old by the start of their new member experience, have an interest in voluntarism, and reside in the western suburbs of Chicago or nearby communities. The League welcomes all women who value our Mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations, and communities.
