Public Policy Institute is a non-partisan program designed to provide Junior League of Charlotte members and community partners with training to enhance their effectiveness in the nonprofit arena by deepening their understanding of advocacy and relevant public policy issues. The program focuses on educating participants in advocacy and in navigating our local, state, and federal governments to achieve their public policy goals. Further, JLC members use this training to go on to serve on the boards of nonprofit agencies and commissions, advocate on issues of public policy, and organize model community programs that address need areas to build better communities. It is an award-winning leadership development program, granted by the Association of Junior Leagues international in 2010. Previous public policy experience is not required.
