The Leader in Me is a national program dedicated to transforming schools to focus on more than just test scores. The program develops life skills in children, centered around the belief that every child can be a leader. Through the program, students can reach their full potential by developing skills such as responsibility, critical thinking, and creative problem solving.
The Jones Family Foundation made a substantial financial gift to launch The Leader in Me program in Bibb County Schools. Four elementary schools have implemented the program, and more will adapt the program in the years to come. The Jones Family Foundation believes The Leader in Me will bring long-term benefits for Middle Georgia by teaching students the practical skills they need to become effective leaders.
