JLIR is one of 294 leagues in four countries encompassing over 193,000 members who work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions and work for change.
There are three categories of membership: provisional, active and sustainer. Provisional members are required to complete a training course designed to develop their potential as trained community volunteers. Active members are the driving force in placements which support and promote the League’s Community Vision: Working together to build a brighter future for children and families. JLIR Sustainers are a group of women who have spent years in active service. Having completed their required years as an active member, these women continue to support the League in many ways.
