• Leadership Greater Jackson is a nine-month leadership development program designed to educate participants about major community issues and alternate approaches to solutions to community problems.  Each month, the Leadership Greater Jackson class meets to explore different aspects of leadership and various challenges facing the community. 

    Sponsored by the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership, Leadership Greater Jackson strives to help grow and enhance leadership qualities through an extensive curriculum, community service projects and interaction with the community’s foremost leadership.  A class of approximately 40 participants are selected by  a committee of program alumni who work to ensure that the individuals chosen reflect the diversity of the community-at-large.
