The first year of membership in the Junior League of Charlottesville (JLC) is spent as a Provisional Member. As a group, Provisionals receive volunteer training, leadership development, and learn about the history, governance, and structure of the JLC.
Provisionals begin their year in August and continue their training through the following May when they become Active Members. Provisionals are required to attend meetings and participate in community service events throughout the year that will help them prepare for becoming an Active member. They must also meet certain financial commitments and successfully complete the Provisional Training Course.
