Transfer your volunteer membership
Already a member of another Junior League? Have you recently moved, or do you plan to move, to New York City? Contact your current Junior League and ask them to transfer your membership to the NYJL. We accept Transfers throughout the year. You’ll get a special advisor to help you navigate your transition. We host fun socials and weekend outings designed especially for Transfers that will help you get to know New York City.
