New Members (Provisionals)

Each fall, the Junior League of Greater Lakeland welcomes a new group of exceptional women to its Provisional Class. The purpose of the Provisional Class is to provide an introduction to The Junior League of Greater Lakeland (JLGL), the Lakeland community and the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI). Group training programs, speakers and program experiences are utilized to enhance volunteer and leadership skills. In addition, members of the Provisional Class have the opportunity to create friendships with other Provisional, active and sustaining JLGL members.
