New Leaders Council (NLC) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization whose mission is to recruit, train, and promote the next generation of progressive leaders.
Founded in 2010, the Chicago Chapter works in conjunction with 30 chapters across the nation to provide highly-motivated, progressive young professionals with the tools, training and network to better serve and shape the future of the city.
Fellows participate in NLC's flagship program, the NLC Institute, a rigorous 5-month training program focused on core skills: leadership, entrepreneurship, fundraising, and communications.
