Quality of Life
What Leadership Jefferson Graduates are saying…
Leadership Jefferson was a wonderful experience. I was born and raised in Jefferson Parish and this program still opened my eyes to so much that the area has to offer. I loved connecting with the people in my class and getting to know so many leaders within the community. Leadership Jefferson helped me grow professionally and personally, as I was able to network, while learning more about myself and the community around me. The program gave me a fresh perspective on so many topics of interest within the parish. I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of the Leadership Jefferson class of 2015.

Leadership Jefferson was a very rewarding experience both professionally and personally. Each session was informative and engaging and brought together a dynamic group of people. I would definitely recommend it and will value the relationships I built at Leadership Jefferson throughout the course of my career.
