Our Mission & Vision

Lead New Jersey (LNJ) opens challenging possibilities to a highly select group of Fellows to learn the cutting edge issues that shape our lives, to link directly with  talented leaders who are making  improvements aound New Jersey, and to lead as a champion of their own most cherished ideas and values.  LNJ makes it happen for those unique individuals who are taking charge in our State!

Our value at LNJ is best expressed by over 1500 Fellows we have prepared who now lead for the common good in our State.  New Jersey's greatest resource is the quality of our leaders. And to that end, we at Lead NJ dedicate ourselves.

Lead New Jersey educates, empowers and engages talented leaders to create systemic change around New Jersey's most challenging issues.
