Become a Community Inspiration

The ten-month long Leadership St. Tammany program closely follows the school year, commencing with a weekend retreat every August. There, a highly respected expert in the field of leadership training guides participants through the process of creating a simulated society, where they experience power, conflict, influence, decision-making, team building exercises and communication skills development. Continuing with nine full-day workshops typically scheduled on the second Wednesday of each month, the program gives each participant training in leadership skills and an increased knowledge of St. Tammany Parish strengths and weaknesses through presentations by leaders and experts in specific fields, enhanced by group discussions and on-site exposure.

Topics include a number of areas in which we face future challenges:

  • Arts/History/Culture/Tourism
  • Education
  • Social Services/Health Care
  • Political Activism/Media
  • Values-Based Leadership
  • Local Government
  • Economic Development/Planning & Growth
  • Judicial System/Law Enforcement

Our program concludes with a graduation banquet attended by sponsors and community members.
