Leadership Development

The JLLC is collaborating to develop strong leaders.  We help create a healthy and confident workforce by sponsoring trainings for families whose children are attending “Leader in Me” schools in SWLA including: Dolby, J.D. Clifton, Maplewood and Oak Park. This results-oriented program teaches children about goal-setting, develops character, and provides tools for conflict resolution. The trainings are based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Successful People and encourage carry-over of the life lessons kids are learning at school.  Funds raised throughout the year enable us to provide these courses at no cost to our community!
