Benefits & Requirements of Membership


Registration for the 2020-2021 Junior League year is NOW OPEN!

Membership within the Junior League of Fort Smith provides many benefits. Our members routinely report that their greatest satisfaction comes from making a positive contribution to the Fort Smith community. Our mission is to empower women through leadership training while also making a positive impact on the current foster care crisis in the Fort Smith area. 

In joining, you can expect to find yourself learning more about the Fort Smith community, yourself, and how to better help others. And you can do so all while building  meaningful relationships within a diverse group of dedicated, talented women.

As a member, you will receive training and experience that can sharpen your skills in areas such as public speaking, public relations, graphic design, marketing, budgeting, facilitation, team building, fundraising, advocacy, volunteer coordination, and program development. This can help better you as a volunteer and, in turn, better the Fort Smith community. In fact, when interviewed, most of our members report that their membership  also betters their personal relationships, job skills, and much more!
