About Leadership Jefferson
Leadership Jefferson is a program of the Jefferson Chamber Foundation, whose mission is to develop a diverse network of dedicated business and community leaders with the capacity to improve the quality of life for all citizens in Jefferson Parish and the Greater New Orleans region.
Leadership Jefferson is a nine-month program that prepares participants for “public life,” the place where citizens gather to participate in the democratic process of discussing and debating issues that impact the quality of life for their families and everyone throughout their community. It is the civic process of seeking “the common good.” A significant product of this process is the creation and maintenance of “social capital,” the vital network of relationships formed between citizens throughout a community. Jefferson Parish and the New Orleans region benefits from the creation of these civic networks, because over time they bring diverse groups of people together who eventually develop knowledge , trust, and respect for other citizens; important community values. Leadership Jefferson utilizes several personal, social, and civic developmental processes as part of its program.
