Why Should I Join?

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

“Meeting solid friends outside of college was a challenge working in a small office, until I joined the Junior League of Denver. Each event and social, I meet someone who is professional and cares about our community.” – Stephanie Ricker, Member since 2012

“I moved to Denver for work and didn’t know anyone here. Because I traveled three weeks a month, I found it difficult to connect with women and to find a way to serve the community. The Junior League of Denver completely changed that. Not only did I meet new friends, but JLD gave me a way to explore Denver, get recommendations for professional services, and give back to my community.” – Jamie Parker, Member since 2012
