The Leadership San Juan Islands program graduated the class of 2006 on Saturday. The members of the 2006 class included members from Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Island. They are the third class to graduate from the program. Leadership SJ Islands is a countywide program, founded in 2004, to educate and motivate emerging community leaders. It is a tuition-based program to educate and motivate community members interested in developing their professional leadership skills, and in learning more about issues affecting San Juan County.

Community leadership programs are a means by which local communities take the initiative in developing a trained network of people engaged in community work. These programs train future politicians, business leaders, agency heads, educators, board members, and volunteers. Leadership San Juan Islands began in Fall 2004 under the auspices of Skagit Valley College, United Way San Juans, and the Economic Development Council. LSJI has Alumni committed to service in many areas of the County including agriculture, transportation, environmental issues, business development, land use, governance, education, community development, recreation, and the continuing success of LSJI.
