What to Expect

New Member Course (Your First Year)

You will be placed in a group of other New Members based on geographic area. An advisor will be assigned to your group and will lead you through your New Member year, helping familiarize you with the League and its members, activities and purpose. You will meet as a group to support each other throughout your initial year, and your advisor will check in on your progress.

New Member Retreat

The New Member Retreat serves as the kick-off to your first year with the Junior League of Denver. You will meet your New Member Advisor and fellow new members and learn about the Junior League of Denver.

The 2023 New Member Retreat will be held on Sunday, August 20th. 

What does Your New Member Year Look Like?

During your New Member year, you will participate in monthly New Member Group meetings held in the evenings on a weekday. Additionally, New Members are required to attend other League events, including Done in a Days, General Meetings and League Experience events held throughout the calendar year.

In addition to monthly New Member Group meetings, most New Members report attending one to two additional two hour long events each month. Many events are in the evening, however some events are weekend events.

New Member Requirements and Commitments

Your New Member year will require a commitment of approximately 60 total hours between the months of August through May. You will participate in:

  • Community Service Projects
  • Training Sessions on the Junior League of Denver
  • Professional and/or Personal Development Events
  • Fundraising Activities or Events
  • Socials to Get Connected with Junior League of Denver members

Active Service

Upon successful completion of your New Member year, you will transition to Active service. As an Active Junior League of Denver member, you will serve on one of many League committees. We ask that you serve a minimum of five years as an Active member.

What do Your Active Years Look Like?

Similar to New Member Group meetings, you will transition into your committee meetings. Many committees will also meet once a month (does not hold true for each committee). And you will be expected to attend events outside of your committee as well including Done in a Days, General Meetings and League Experience events held throughout the calendar year.
