Make Friends. Make a Difference. Become a JLCW Member.

The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) invites women who live or work in Eastchester, Greenburgh, Scarsdale or White Plains to our semiannual prospective member information sessions on Wednesday, September 18 at 8:00 p.m. and Friday, September 20 at 9:30 a.m. at Wayside Cottage, 1039 Post Road, Scarsdale, NY.

Established in 1947, the JLCW is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  The JLCW welcomes all women who value our mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations, and communities.

At the information sessions, participants will learn about our diverse community projects, how our efforts improve the lives of neighbors in need, as well as the activities that support these initiatives, including fundraising and development, volunteer training and communications. We will discuss the wide range of events that the JLCW hosts throughout the year, including training seminars, roundtable discussions, community events, and fundraisers that are enjoyed with family and friends.

Participants will also learn about the numerous opportunities our members enjoy to connect and socialize with each other, including after-work gatherings at restaurants and bars, fitness classes, mom meet-ups at local play areas, charity runs, movie nights, private shopping events, cooking classes and more.

“I could not be more excited to welcome a new group of women that are eager to lead mindfully and give back to our community,” said Valerie Phillips, President of the JLCW. “We believe that the empowerment of women is necessary to create positive and lasting change, and our members value transformational female leaders who set bold goals and work collaboratively to achieve community impact while developing friendships along the way.”

Women who are interested in joining will become provisional members and have the opportunity to work together to complete a short-term community service project. The Fall 2019 new member class will participate in a project that will benefit the local community and allow new members to get acquainted with JLCW members and each other.
