Community Impact

How We Have Served

Since our first class in 1995, Leadership Johnson County has studied many issues, supported great causes and engaged the community in numerous ways. Our Signature Program classes are divided into groups who work together to address opportunities and challenges in our community. 

The projects vary each year, but the goals of engaging in creative problem solving through collaboration remain the same. These projects have led to significant community initiatives that have impacted the lives of Johnson County residents. 

The Signature Program taught me so much about our community and how I can make a difference in it. Since then, I continue to be inspired by LJC through the many learning opportunities offered and the connections I've made with other leaders in the community.
