Junior League of Central Westchester Announces Recruitment Dates for New Members
Informational Coffees to be Held on January 22nd and 23rd, 2015
January 5, 2015, Scarsdale NY – The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) invites women living or working in Eastchester, Greenburgh, Scarsdale and White Plains to its semi-annual “Recruiting Coffees” at historic Wayside Cottage on January 22nd at 8PM and January 23rd at 9:30AM. The JLCW is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women by providing leadership training and improving the community through numerous volunteer projects. The JLCW is comprised of diverse women from Central Westchester and we welcome the opportunity for women of all races, religions and national origins who are committed to volunteerism to become members.
At the informational coffees, prospective members will learn about the JLCW’s efforts to improve the lives of neighbors in need, as well as the activities that support these initiatives, including fundraising and development, volunteer training and communications. Joining the JLCW provides opportunities for volunteers to impact their community in a meaningful way and foster life-long friendships with fellow volunteers and members of the community in which they serve.
Each year, the JLCW opens its doors to women of Central Westchester who want to become involved in an organization that makes a difference in the lives of hundreds of local children and individuals, offers training in a variety of educational and leadership opportunities, and provides opportunities for personal growth, leadership and lifelong friendship. It’s a great way to meet other diverse women in Central Westchester and get involved in the community.
New members enter a training course where they work together to complete a short-term community service project. The short-term projects for new members are designed to help the community, allow members to get acquainted with the JLCW, and foster networking between new members. The Spring 2015 new member class will participate in a project that will help benefit the local community that the JLCW serves.
“I am thrilled to welcome a new group of women to the JLCW who share in our commitment to give to their community in truly meaningful ways,” said Nikki Hahn, President of the JLCW. “We are a diverse membership ranging from working professionals to stay-at-home moms, all looking for the unique combination of personal enrichment and fellowship offered through the JLCW. I’m looking forward to working with these women to grow as leaders, improve our community and gain new friendships in the process.”
The coffees will be held on January 22, 2015 at 8PM and January 23, 2015 at 9:30AM at Wayside Cottage, 1039 Post Road, Scarsdale NY. Women interested in learning more about the JLCW should RSVP by January 16, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to (914) 723-6130.
