2014-2015 Provisional Members

The Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc. (JLNVB) is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  

The Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach was founded in 1925 with a rich history of volunteer service. For over 90 years, the JLNVB has provided its members with training, leadership skills, and the opportunities to make a difference in the lives of citizens throughout South Hampton Roads. Today, it is a diverse group of dedicated women working to make a positive impact on South Hampton Roads by focusing on the health and education of women and children. As a nonprofit, its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The JLNVB welcomes all women who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism and leadership.

The JLNVB has more than 400 New Member, Active, and Sustaining members. Our membership includes women from diverse backgrounds, ranging from business owners and working mothers to young professionals and stay-at-home moms. Each year, members provide over 1,000 hours of service to various events and organizations.

The JLNVB is part of a larger organization: the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI). AJLI includes almost 300 Junior Leagues throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, England and Europe consisting of approximately 200,000 women, all striving for positive change in their communities.


JLNVB membership is open to all women who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism. The JLNVB hosts a variety of recruitment events across South Hampton Roads. We encourage you to check out our Facebook or events page to learn more about upcoming recruitment events. These events are optional, but provide an opportunity for prospective new members to meet and socialize with current active JLNVB members and get more information on the League.

Recruitment for the 2016-2017 class is now open and the application is available here. Contact the New Member Recruitment Chair with questions.
