How to Join

The 2020-2021 membership application period is now closed. If you are interested in joining next year, please follow us on social media or contact for more information.

Junior FWL members are sophomores, juniors and seniors.

We recommend that you review “What is Membership Like?“, “Who May Join JrFWL“, and “Our Selection Process“.

For the 2020-2021 school year, we will accept New Member Applications between March 20 – April 20, 2020.

There are two parts to the process: the Online Application and the 2020-2021 Application Information PacketBoth must be completed by April 20, 2020, for your application to be complete and timely.

We do not accept late applications. We know that delays can be an unfortunate reality… but in the case of more applicants than we have spaces, it is unavoidable: we must eliminate any paperwork that comes in after the deadline.

For this reason, we strongly encourage you to begin the process of identifying references and completing your form even if you haven’t made a final decision about Junior FWL yet. We cannot extend the deadline simply because someone didn’t decide to apply until the last day.

We do not review incomplete applications. Please make sure you take the time to review all parts of the document, and provide your reference contact information accurately.

All applicants will be contacted by Wednesday, May 20, 2020.

How to Apply
You will need to complete the following steps in order to apply:

  1. You must be in the graduating class of 2022 or 2023 at the time of application.
  2. Read in full the Application Information Packet. This packet includes the Junior FWL Code of Conduct and Time Requirements for your review, as well as information about dues.
  3. Request at least two contacts who will provide a personal reference for you.
  4. Make sure your parent/guardian has signed the Application Signature Pages.
  5. Mail your Application Signature Page via USPS as instructed in the packet.
  6. Make sure you have submitted your Online Application  no later than 11:59 pm on April 20, 2020.
  7. We recommend you screenshot the confirmation page on the Online Application after submitting so you know it went through.
What Happens After You Apply
  • We will notify you by email when we receive your Application Signature Page in the mail.
  • We will send you the email confirmation of receipt after receiving your application and Signature Page, but the process isn’t immediate. You may contact us after May 13, 2020 to confirm, if you haven’t received this email confirming receipt.
  • We will contact all applicants with update by May 20, 2020.
