The Junior League of Charlotte, Inc. announced that it is actively recruiting women for its next class of volunteers and local leaders.
The JLC is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism and leadership development. It is renowned for its legacy of service and commitment to improving the Charlotte community.
The new member program, which begins in September and ends in May 2015, will provide women with an opportunity to engage in community service and networking with like-minded women while growing personally and professionally through innovative training.
“Our 88-year-old organization, now with approximately 2000 members and over 40 different placements, has so many opportunities for our members to make a difference in our community,” said JLC President Beverley Shull. “Our year-long provisional class will provide our newest members ample exposure to all that we have to offer through our volunteer work, as well as an early glimpse into how the JLC develops the potential of women through training and project development.”
The JLC annually contributes more than $90,000 to community projects and over 25,000 volunteer hours. Projects that are supported by the JLC include: Junior League of Charlotte Family Resource Center at Levine Children’s Hospital, Kids HealthLink, JLC Smiles, Big Shots Saturdays, Junior League of Charlotte Puppet Theater and more.
Potential members can learn more about the JLC at one of two open houses, scheduled for 7 p.m. on June 16 and 30 at The JLC Building, located at 1332 Maryland Avenue. Register online at www.jlcharlotte.org. Call (704) 375-5993 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
