The LEADS program is available for JAG students who aspire to become changemakers before graduation. LEADS receive an advisor with which they identify opportunities for leadership development, community engagement, and having their voices heard on a national level with other JAG programs across the country.
As one of our largest LEADS groups in JAG history, our 13 LEADS have a lot of exciting opportunities this year to make a difference and grow as leaders. Their first opportunity came at the High School Leadership Development Conference, where they were officially announced as LEADS to their statewide JAG program peers and challenged to facilitate icebreakers for more than 200 students.
Turning obstacles into opportunities doesn’t stop there! They will also have the chance to attend the National Leadership Academy hosted by Jobs for America’s Graduates in Washington, D.C. this fall and a follow-up conference in Florida in the spring of 2023.
Three juniors and 10 seniors have risen to the challenge of the LEADS program this year, and we look forward to seeing them shine in their roles.
