NLC is stepping up in 2017

NLC is stepping up in 2017

The past few weeks have been an incredibly exciting time for NLC. We have launched this year's NLC Institute, celebrated with our alumni who are impacting their communities, and marched for the progressive values we share. We are excited to see what our community accomplishes in 2017.  

NLC kicks off its 2017 Institute

Our chapters across the country kicked off 2017 with a commitment to continue building the progressive bench. This year, our Institutes will train more than 800 progressive leaders in 43 communities across the country.

This month our new Fellows engage in the NLC Life Entrepreneurship program. Guided by our outstanding team of volunteer facilitators, Fellows reflect on their lives and determine how best to achieve their individual and community goals while making lasting connections with their cohort.
