Applications for the 2015 Fellowship are Open NOW
The NLC Institute is the premier leadership and professional development program for young progressive professionals.
Bringing together training, mentoring, networking, and career and political advancement, the NLC Institute is the key pathway into progressive entrepreneurship. During the NLC Institute you learn everything from Communications, Framing, and Strategic Messaging to Fundraising and Finance to Advocacy Coalition Building, Campaign Management, and Networked Organizing.
Even more, once you enter the New Leaders Council Institute you’re a part of something much more than that: the NLC national community.
Fellows can expect to learn from experts in their fields and just as much from their peers, the other members of your NLC class. NLC Fellows then bring together all these skills by developing their own, individualized Capstone, a detailed life planning document that set outs their personal and professional goals and the concrete steps they—and the NLC Community—can take to achieve those goals. Each fellow presents their capstone to their peers for review, and received ongoing support from the local and national NLC community.
If you’re a rising progressive star, please consider applying for the NLC Institute in your area. And, if you know a young progressive star, nominate them and become a member of the NLC community today.
So apply, nominate, and spread the word: NLC is accepting applications for the 2015 NLC Class right now.
Applications close at 11:59 pm on Tuesday, November 11.
The Real Progressives of Orange County: training and supporting the next generation of political entrepreneurs.
The mission of New Leaders Council (NLC) is to train and support the next generation of progressive political entrepreneurs – those who are leading industries, setting trends, and building institutions that support robust civic and political life in a global America.
NLC believes in recruiting emerging leaders from outside of the traditional power structures, engaging them on both local and national levels, and equipping them to be civic leaders – not only for elective office, but also in their communities and workplaces.
NLC accomplishes this mission primarily through the NLC Institute; the nation’s premiere political entrepreneurship training program that builds local teams of outstanding young professionals across the nation. NLC Fellows engage in an intensive ten days of training over a five-month period to learn cutting-edge entrepreneurship, leadership, and political management skills from over 150 industry-leading volunteer faculty. Fellows are paired with career mentors, join a national alumni network, and agree to fundraise to support the next class of Fellows.
The result of NLC is a growing corps of diverse and highly-skilled new progressive leaders who rise to the top of their fields, working together across sectors and in their local cities to build, expand, and improve the progressive infrastructure necessary for strong democracy, social justice, and equal opportunity.
