Junior Leadership

Modeled after The Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce’s successful adult program, Leadership Las Cruces, Junior Leadership tailors each session for high school juniors to receive a hands-on education about Las Cruces’ rich history, opportunities and challenges.

Just like in the adult program, participants tour the region and meet face-to-face with many of the areas leaders in government, nonprofits, government, the arts, education, healthcare and the military. JrLLC also offers student participants the opportunity to meet and interact with other high school students from across the Las Cruces area. This unique experience provides student participants with the confidence, communication skills, and leadership ability they will need to give them a running start toward success.

All interested area high school juniors are encouraged to submit the attached application form or contact their counselor or principal for an application packet. If there are questions, please contact the Chamber of Commerce for more information at 575-524-1968 or chamber@lascruces.org
