Student Leadership Board

The Jeffco Student Leadership Board (JSLB) is a diverse group of high school students representing every high school in Jeffco. JSLB is facilitated by Jeffco leaders and community industry leaders who are dedicated to building a community of leaders in Jeffco.

Our students' experience in JSLB will enhance their education, leadership development, and showcase the brilliance of today's student generation to prepare them for the future beyond high school graduation.

As a member of the JSLB, our student leaders play a crucial role in shaping policies and decisions that directly impact the education and well-being of all students in Jeffco. The students also serve as a student advisory board to Superintendent Dorland. 

While serving on JSLB, student leaders participate in leadership development opportunities that give them skills and experiences needed to become leaders in their communities and in their own lives after graduation. JSLB participants also work towards earning their Student Leadership & Future CEO Certificate through a formalized training program called the Student CEO Blueprint. The JSLB members will also create individual leadership portfolios to assist in all future endeavors and aspirations. 

This year, JSLB student leaders will: 

  • Spend a day with the Board of Education and Jeffco Cabinet learning about the pathways to leadership while also providing perspective and insight on the Jeffco student experience 
  • Attend the Colorado Youth Celebrate Diversity Conference 
  • Serve on a subcommittee that will strengthen their leadership skills in service of the broader Jeffco community 
  • Plan and host the inaugural Jeffco Student CEO Leadership Conference on April 26, 2024. The conference will welcome high school student leaders from across Jeffco.
  • Participate in suicide prevention training with the Jeffco Mental Health team 
  • Lead a community service project: Winter Wear Initiative, Jan/Feb. 2024
  • Serve on panels, speak at workshops, and represent Jeffco as student ambassadors throughout the year 

The JSLB is a paid internship. To be selected for the Board, students 1) were nominated by a staff member at their school, 2) completed an application, and 3) participated in a competitive interview led by other Jeffco student leaders. It is a great honor to be selected! This achievement reflects not only our students’ dedication to growing their own leadership skills but also their commitment to making a positive impact on the Jeffco community.
