Why Leadership University?

Exposing young leaders to leadership through interactive programming and the impact on a strong and dynamic community.

Leadership University

Leadership University is a youth leadership development program for Jackson-Madison County and is made up of a diverse group of high school juniors that demonstrates leadership potential. Started in 1999 as a team class project of Leadership Jackson, LU prepares participants to become responsible, ethical leaders that make a positive difference in others, as well as their community by creating awareness in all aspects of the community. Through interactive programming, Leadership University teaches about all aspects of our community, as well as prepares participants to be leaders in their schools and community, equipping them with skills and information to be successful. It has developed into the premier youth leadership program in Jackson. 

In order for Leadership University to be a success, parents must feel comfortable and secure with their youth’s participation in the program. Every effort will be made to answer questions by parents and students. A Parents’ Information Session will be held prior to the start of the program.
