New Leaders Council

NLC Institute

The NLC Institute is an intensive, five-month progressive entrepreneurship training program. It is the premier leadership and professional development, training, mentoring, networking, and career and political advancement program for young professionals.

The New Leaders Council leadership development experience differs from most other programs across the country due to the focus on skills transfer for each cohort. The curriculum, developed with partners across the country and refined for the past 11 years, trains all of our fellows in a wide suite of skills over the 6-month program. Each Institute weekend focuses on a theme that strengthens our fellows’ individual leadership development. Sessions typically take place from 9 am - 4 pm during one designated weekend per month.

The 2018 NLC Institute is held from January - May each year. Institute sessions include the following plus additional content focusing on local issues as developed by each chapter:

  • Session 1: Personal Assessment and Entrepreneurial Goal Settings
  • Session 2: Strategic Communications and Digital Outreach
  • Session 3: Economics, Finance, and Fundraising
  • Session 4: Management and Coalition Building
  • Session 5: Progressive Policy
