Acknowledgement of JLM Background Screening

The Junior League of Memphis’s community programs focus on neighborhood revitalization and include education, family strengthening and community pride. Many of our community partners require that a criminal background check be completed before a member can work with the children being served. All members, regardless of where they serve within the JLM, are required to complete a background check.

You will be emailed a link to the Background Screening company once we received your completed application and fees. 

We do not accept background checks done outside of the Junior League of Memphis. 


The following questions have no bearing on admission, but will help us plan for the year.
