Leadership Days


Together we become tomorrow's leaders!

October 10, 23, and 24, 2023 

Leadership Days is our annual event focused on leadership and team building. It’s a full day of staff-led activities that allow participants to get to know their fellow JMG youth from around the state and gain confidence in themselves. 

This year, we were delighted to welcome Richard Szwaja, an accomplished Organization Development and Learning Specialist from the Bronson Center for Learning, who joined us at all our locations. He brought with him a transformative approach, 

reframing our focus by incorporating two vital CASEL framework competencies: self-awareness and self-management.
