Each New Member (Provisional) class completes a class project together that aligns with Junior League of The Woodlands’ mission to develop the potential of women and improve communities through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Additionally, the project aims to address one or more of our key results areas focused on the well-being of women, children and families, family health and preservation, and education.
Throughout a New Member’s coursework and the preparation of their class project, New Members learn how Junior League of The Woodlands operates and how their specific class project aligns to JLTW established Community Programs and fundraisers.
For example, Junior League of The Woodlands operates under a Council/Committee structure, where one or more areas are under the guidance and leadership of a JLTW Board Member and appointed Committee Chairs. The class project teams are built to mirror roles or activities that occur on Committees that exist in JLTW, such as Chair Roles (leadership), Communications, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging, Finance, Logistics and Strategic Planning, to name a few.
Before the New Member class embarks on learning how to facilitate their assigned class project, they are introduced to the project through a group service event. This begins the process of see one, do one, teach one. As a training organization, JLTW is committed to preparing New Members to not only participate in community action through service, but to also lead JLTW programming and to teach others the skills they have learned through their professional and JLTW endeavors.
