What Is It?

The Leadership Institute of Acadiana’s Intro Lafayette program is designed for those with limited time, but plenty of interest in Lafayette Parish. This program is your behind-the-scenes look at important updates on the private, public, and nonprofit sector landscape from those experts working in it while also engaging with your peers participating in the program. The program is designed to:

  • Expose participants to a variety of business, civic, and community leaders
  • Broaden participants’ knowledge about the rich history, culture, and events of the region
  • Provide the opportunity for participants to network and build camaraderie with fellow participants
  • Spark an interest and challenge participants to become more involved in the community

Who Is It For?

What Do Participants and Their Organizations Get Out of the Program?

Participants leave the program better informed of the parish’s present-day realities. Plus, they emerge better connected to the people, organizations, and service opportunities that can together, make positive and meaningful changes in the parish. When participants activate the knowledge and connections gained through Intro Lafayette, the community and businesses benefit from improved understanding, services, and relationships.
