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 28 at 7:30 pm and January 29 at 9:30 am. 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.
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 2016 new member class will participate in a project that will help benefit the local community that the JLCW serves.
“We are looking forward to welcoming a new group of women again this spring,” said Alison Messerle, 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 giving back to our local community and developing friendship along the way all offered through the JLCW.”
The coffees will be held at Wayside Cottage, 1039 Post Road, Scarsdale NY. Women interested in learning more about the JLCW should RSVP by January 15th by email to email@example.com or phone (914) 723-6130. More details are available at www.jlcentralwestchester.org.
