Why Should I Join?

Watch a short video to learn more about what our members do, and why you should consider joining.

“For me, the Junior League of Denver is the definition of both/and. I get to use my existing skills and develop new skills. It’s a place where I get to serve the Denver community, and be served with opportunities to grow and develop news skills. The skills and friendships from my time in the League make both my League life and regular life richer.” – Kelsey Rogstad, Member since 2014 

“On the surface, I joined JLD to meet people as well as get to know the city through philanthropic opportunities. On a deeper level, I joined because my mom found her Junior League experience so fulfilling and rewarding. Even until her passing she continued to pay her sustainer dues in order to support a mission in which she lived by and believed in…I’ve stayed because I have met lifelong friends and had the opportunity to get to know and support many amazing nonprofit organizations around the metro-area.” – Robin Andersen, Member since 2014
