Our Impact


New Leaders Council's aggressive expansion to 47 chapters across the United States in 2016 has resulted in one of our most exciting and diverse classes of Fellows. In 2017, with nearly 4,000 alumni, and an aim of 10,000 alumni by 2020 in every region and market in the U.S., NLC continues its commitment to training America's future. Diversity within the New Leaders Council community of Fellows, Alumni and supporters is key to our success and sets New Leaders Council apart from other leadership training organizations.

NLC offers a variety of programs, networking events and professional development opportunities that engage our Institute graduates, resulting in a strongly connected Alumni family that continues to support NLC and its mission. 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. As a group, our alumni are outstanding representatives in a variety of fields, including education, the arts, social and economic issue advocacy and youth mentoring.
