Prerequisites

As an international organization, La Leche League standards for Leader accreditation are the same worldwide. All future Leaders are expected to meet the prerequisites to applying for leadership and to value and role-model the organization’s philosophy in their own lives. La Leche League International is committed to serving everyone and seeks the equitable accreditation of a diverse body of Leaders.

Everyone in LLL brings their unique experience, warmth, empathy and other skills to their LLL work, whether they have had one baby or several.

There may be one or more areas where you feel you do not meet the prerequisites to applying for leadership. You are not alone! Many Leaders have had similar concerns. The important thing is to talk over your situation with your Group Leader. If there is no Group or Leader where you are, please contact the LLL Leader Accreditation Department (LAD) at: LeaderAccreditation@llli.org

See “Applying for Leadership,” Appendix 18 to LLLI PSR, for more information.  Contact a local Leader for a copy.
