About Our Leadership Program

Leadership Johns Creek (LJC) is designed to develop leadership talent in individuals representing the Johns Creek community through a structured series of learning experiences. The program consists of an evening orientation, one two-day retreat, seven one day sessions, a class project and a graduation.  Meetings and activities are distributed over a ten-month period beginning in August.

In addition to leadership training and development, class participants gain insight into business, government, community quality of life, volunteer service and local history. LJC graduates are projected to be the future leaders of Johns Creek, leading civic and business organizations for community action and improvement. LJC Alumni are expected to take an active role in planning the next year's Leadership curriculum.

A vital component of LJC is community service. The graduating classes to date have made substantial contributions to the community. Some of the projects have included: The Newtown Park Community Garden, the Educational Pond at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve, Historical Markers, a Video History of Johns Creek, a certified Natural Wildlife Habitat along the upgraded Johns Creek Greenway near JCHS, and the "Billy Badge Program" to introduce Public Safety to elementary school children!

Potential participants are encouraged to email our Executive Director, Lynn Canty to be informed about the 2018 class application process. Because it is both an honor and a privilege to be selected for the Leadership Johns Creek program, the highest degree of commitment is expected of all participants.
