Millennials are leading the charge in debates about economy, social justice and the democratic system. For over 10 years New Leaders Council has trained the next generation of leaders. Whether that is challenging current policies or pushing for new ones, these leaders are breaking barriers. Through various events at different chapters, and national policy conversations, NLC has empowered these millennials to seek change.
In addition, NLC's Fellows Institute is a highly selective and intensive training program for young progressive professionals. Bringing together training, mentoring, and networking, the NLC Institute is the key pathway into progressive entrepreneurship. Each year they look for young professionals with progressive passion and an entrepreneurial streak to join our class of fellows. The Institute lasts from January to June.
