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.

Student applications are available in the spring of participant’s Sophomore year of high school. The application is highly-competitive and approximately twenty five (25) students are accepted each year.

Program Application Process: The application for the 2017-2018 school year is closed. You can review a copy of the application for future reference.
