The Junior League of Douglas County (JLDC) is open to women who are at least 23 years of age and show an interest in volunteerism, commitment to community service, and an interest in developing their potential for voluntary community participation. New members joining the League will enter as a Provisional member. By requiring new members to spend their first year with Junior League as a Provisional, they are given the opportunity to learn how JLDC gives back to Douglas County through the projects it supports. During this time, Provisionals will have several training and education opportunities. Of course, all of this is done while making lifelong friends with other League members.
