    • Empowering youth to adopt healthy habits and reverse the growth of childhood obesity in Maricopa County through our Kids in the Kitchen program.
    • Developing the math and science skills of pre-kindergarten children by way of our R.O.C.K.E.T.S. program (Raising Our Children’s Knowledge by Educating Through Science)
    • Bringing affordable fresh fruits and vegetables and providing community health resources to the residents of downtown Phoenix and Tempe as a founding partner of the Fresh Express by Discovery Triangle mobile market
    • Offering health and wellness programming and other child-focused events and activities through partnerships with the Phoenix Rescue Mission Changing Lives Center and the Phoenix Day Health Links program.

Who is Eligible?

Total membership in The Junior League of Phoenix exceeds 1,100. Membership is open to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and a commitment to voluntarism. Over 100 women are accepted into the Provisional new member group each Spring.

A prospective member must be a woman with an interest in voluntarism, a commitment to community service, and an interest in developing her potential for voluntary community participation.

Prospective members must be at least 22 years of age. There is no maximum age.

How to Join

The Junior League of Phoenix welcomes new members in the late spring. Each woman is required to attend one of the Information Sessions held March-May to be considered for Provisional membership. Once accepted into the Junior League of Phoenix, the Provisional new member course provides education, training about the structure of The Junior League of Phoenix and our role in the community. Provisional members also have the opportunity to participate in “hands-on” activities, fundraising events and numerous social activities throughout the year. Successful completion of the Provisional new member course prepares Provisional Members for Active membership in one of the many Junior League committees.

Available Information Sessions

It is required for all potential members to attend an information session. At this session, you will meet active members, get an overview of the provisional program and required components, and receive an application. Sign up for one of our twelve info sessions, many of which are graciously hosted in the homes of our members.

AZ Central Article: Two Phoenix mega sales celebrate long history

JLP-33_JLP_Rummage_Sale_Logo_-_Retro_Version_1.2.png

Check out this great AZ Central article by Donna Reiner featuring the history of the Junior League of Phoenix Rummage Sale!

Everyone loves a bargain, and those bargains are certainly worth the wait. One year, the eager ladies required a police escort in and out of the sale hall. That may seem strange, but one of these ladies became the proud owner of an Edith Small suit for $2, and it normally sold for $200.

Small’s designs were exquisite and ever-so-popular at the time; it’s no wonder that the Junior League wanted to make sure no fights broke out over this one treasured item.

While many of you may have attended this huge rummage sale over the years, for those who didn’t, try to picture what it must have been like the year a Shetland Pony was being sold as “rummage.” Another year, the sale included a car auction. The eclectic offerings never seem to amaze those regular attendees.
