Since 2004, LSJI has contributed to the vitality of San Juan County by helping community members become better leaders and citizens. Sessions help participants develop facilitative leadership skills and an improved understanding of how local organizations, both public and private, work together in the islands. The five-month program includes 11 program days, including orientation, skills-building retreats, challenge days and graduation and one service project day when participants participate in a small group service project – determined on the focus of your group. Upon successful completion, participants will be able to demonstrate a range of leadership skills and abilities. Participants will be selected based on the following criteria: commitment to community involvement, evidence of interest in using leadership skills and demonstrated involvement in the San Juan Islands. Tuition is $750, plus a $50 application fee. Payment plans and scholarships are available. Find an application at www.lsji.org or contact 2018 coordinator Vivette Bordas at (253) 653-5213.
