IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Lafayette Junior Leadership


Lafayette Junior Leadership is a unique youth leadership program designed to educate, inspire, and retain future leaders for our community. Sophomores enrolled in private, public, or home-school in Lafayette Parish are eligible and encouraged to apply for the program.

This youth leadership program is offered to high school Juniors over a 9-month period. A one-day retreat opens the program and is followed by 8 monthly full-day sessions held in September through April, with a graduation ceremony in May. Monthly sessions are held from 7:45 am to 3 pm. Students learn leadership and problem solving skills, meet students from other schools in their community, and have worthwhile discussions on community enhancement and leaving an impact.
