Youth Leadership Jacksonville
A program of Leadership Jacksonville, Inc
What is it?
Created in 1989, this year-long program brings together a select and diverse group of high school juniors, with demonstrated leadership ability, and prepares them to become ethical leaders committed to active community involvement.
During this exciting program, students attend an Opening Retreat, six Program Days (one per month) and a Closing Retreat. Programs are practical in nature with hands-on activities. Program Days deal with specific facets of the community such as government, criminal justice, human services, diversity and business. Each day combines a behind-the-scenes experience with a great deal of interaction with the appropriate community leaders.
