Leadership Jefferson County

This popular program is designed to identify emerging leaders within Jefferson County and help them develop their leadership potential. Leadership Jefferson County (LJC) provides class members with a broader view of civic leadership through contact with people and institutions that shape Jefferson County. Candidates for the program must be concerned about issues affecting the greater Denver area and be committed to involvement in shaping the future.

The program begins with a two-day orientation & retreat in August and concludes with a graduation dinner in June. Monthly one-day forums expose participants to government, economics, health care, education, arts, justice system, business, regional issues, and human services.


Due to the Covid-19 situation, a decision was made to postpone the Leadership Jefferson County Class of 2020-2021.  We will begin accepting applications in May 2021 for a new Leadership Jefferson County Class that will begin in August 2021.  Please visit this website again for the new application next year.
