For the first time in program history, Lafayette Junior Leadership (LJL), a program of the Leadership Institute of Acadiana (LIA), will put their education into action through community action projects. LJL is a unique youth leadership program that strives to create an exceptional and educational experience for its participants while empowering them to become the next generation of leaders. The LJL planning committee is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to select the program’s first Community Action Project(s). We are seeking project proposals from community agencies, nonprofit organizations, municipalities, educational institutions, and individuals for consideration as a Community Action Project. Proposals should be large enough to employ the skills of 8-12 of Lafayette’s most talented high school juniors with varying talents and experiences. Should you choose to participate, proposals are due in electronic format by 4:00 pm on Friday, July 6, 2018. The RFP may be accessed via http://leadershipacadiana.org/juniorleadership/rfp/.
