What is our purpose as LLL Leaders?
The general purpose of the organization is to help the mother learn to breastfeed her baby, to encourage good mothering through breastfeeding, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding and related subjects. LLL is an international, educational, nonsectarian, nondiscriminatory service organization with a strict policy of not mixing causes. We have that policy in order to offer breastfeeding help to mothers with a variety of personal beliefs. Leaders know the importance of one mother helping another to recognize and understand the needs of her child and to find the best means of fulfilling those needs. Leaders provide information and support so that each mother can make the decisions which are best for her family.
Where do I start?
If you are interested in becoming an LLL Leader, review the La Leche League International page on Thinking About LLL Leadership. Also, find a group near you and start attending a series of meetings! We have groups that meet all over San Antonio at various times and locations. Building a relationship with the group and the local leaders is an important first step in the journey to leadership.
