Eligibility for Joining JLD

The Junior League of Dallas does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, religion or national origin, and reaches out to women of all races, creeds, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.  There is no deliberative process in the admission system. The JLD uses only the following criteria for prospective members:

  • Age:   A prospective member for Provisional membership must have reached her 22nd birthday and not have reached her 45thbirthday by June 1 of the Administrative Year in which she is sponsored for membership to be eligible for application for membership.
  • Residency:  There are no residency restrictions , however, the member must be able to travel to locations, placements, etc. in Dallas.
  • Sponsors:
    • Prospective New Members will need TWO sponsors: a Lead Sponsor and a Co-Sponsor that are Actives and/or Sustainers in the Junior League of Dallas (Provisionals are not eligible to Sponsor). If the Prospective New Member cannot secure two sponsors, the JLD will assist them through our Sponsor Pool.
    • All Actives and Sustainers in good standing may serve as a Lead Sponsor for one Prospective New Member and then also as a co-sponsor for another Prospective New Member.
    • It is the responsibility of the Prospective New Member to secure two sponsors for herself.
    • Members of other Junior Leagues are not eligible to sponsor prospective new members of the Junior League of Dallas.
