The Junior League is a complex and active group of women working in various capacities to support both itself and lend support to the community at large. Because the Junior League is such a dynamic organization, members first engage in a Provisional period of training and volunteer activities to prepare them for effective community involvement and active membership.
Shawn Sherlock, a current Provisional Member of the Junior League of Boca Raton, shares her experience:
The list is endless in the reasons why ANY one woman should or would join the Junior League of Boca Raton. But, topping the list of why “I” specifically joined: to be part of a group of strong and passionate women who want to truly want to make a difference in their community. I soon learned one way I could make a difference was by learning from our fantastic leaders. From the get go, I have taken the time to meet with JL chairs and committee members to learn the ropes so to speak. Thus far, it’s been a fantastic way for me to learn how by being a member can go a long way in working with vendors in your area. It’s especially been fantastic in aiding my role as Co-Chair for this March’s “Sex in the City” themed General Membership Meeting. I look forward in further engaging myself with my leaders as I delve into the new role of Incoming Chair Elect for The Bridge, the Junior League of Boca Raton's magazine. I would also like to say that anyone who joins the League would also agree the bonds within this group are so strong. The relationships that start here last for a lifetime. I am truly honored to be part of such a force. I look forward to a fantastic 2011 and many years to come!
