New Member Experience

We accept a class of new members, also known as Provisionals, each year. Your Provisional year is focused on training and discovery. You will have a chance to learn about the Tampa community and how to be an effective volunteer. You will also have the opportunity to volunteer and attend events across the League’s different impact areas. You will be equipped with the tools to serve in an area you are most passionate about.

A new Provisional Course starts on July 1st of each year.
