Learn more about the NLC Faculty, and learn more about the elected leaders and dignitaries that support the NLC Institute.

NLC recruits Fellows from outside traditional power structures and equips them with the skills necessary to be civic leaders in their communities and workplaces. Our mission is realized primarily through the NLC Institute; the nation’s premiere political entrepreneurship training program. The NLC Institute will be conducted by 39 Chapters nationwide in 2016, training approximately 800 new leaders across sectors.


  • People: For the 2015 class, 52% of our Fellows were women and 51% were of a non-white racial background.
  • Progress: For 2016, we have expanded to 44 chapters nationwide, and are on track to reach a goal of 10,000 new leaders trained by 2020, thereby building a long term progressive infrastructure from coast-to-coast.
  • Results: NLC’s results are measured not just by how many fellows we train and empower, but also by the impact they have after graduating from our Institute. Our alumni have gone on to start businesses, work for Fortune 500 companies, manage campaigns, create their own non-profits and serve in elected office.
