Each year the Junior League of Dallas trains a group of first-year members, “Provisionals,” to be effective volunteers and leaders in the community. Provisional members complete a comprehensive training course that allows them to experience needs, first-hand, within the Dallas community. This year, each Provisional member will participate in one of thirteen 20-hour community service projects designed, implemented and completed by the Provisionals. The projects span the six Intervention Areas within the Junior League of Dallas: Arts and Culture, Poverty Intervention, Family Preservation, Violence Intervention, Health, and Education.
