Junior League of Guadalajara makes volunteering easy, inspiring, safe and fun!

The Junior League of Guadalajara (JLGDL) is part of The International Association of Junior Leagues (AJLI), founded in 1901. AJLI is committed to developing and empowering female leaders to set bold goals and change the conversation for the betterment of civil society. Over 30 years ago, Junior League was introduced to the city by a group of women aware of the pressing needs in our community. Since then, Junior League of Guadalajara members have been serving, volunteering and working to help the most marginalized groups in the community.

Our volunteers

  • get hands-on experience working with the most vulnerable members of our community and solving problems first hand
  • work as a team, supporting each other, promoting one another’s ideas and getting organized to turn these ideas into reality

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

Our volunteers are required to attend monthly meetings and fundraisers, as well as participate monthly in our programs.

Our League holds a two hour General Meeting once a month, August through June.
During these meetings:

  • The leadership shares updates on recent achievements and discusses what’s ahead

  • As part of our ongoing commitment to training, we have presentations on the work of other nonprofit organizations and the current state of our society, conducted by professionals who present to our members, the work they are doing in the community.
