Junior Leadership Anderson (JLA)
The Junior Leadership Anderson program is a program designed to encourage, equip, and empower young people for leadership roles in the future. The participants are highly qualified but ordinary students from Anderson County high schools, all of them from different ethnic and economic backgrounds. These participants learn about our community by touring businesses and agencies, meeting with community leaders, and working on group projects.
They also develop lifelong friendships with students from other high schools, and have fun designing a class t-shirt and planning a major community service event. In addition to developing leadership skills, the program aims to teach the values of the Anderson and South Carolina communities.
The best way to predict the future…is to create it.
