Fellowship Capstone Projects: NLC’s “Social Impact Incubator” Changes Communities Nationwide NLC Fellows are civic, social, and business entrepreneurs who lead the charge on the ground to solve the most critical challenges facing our communities. NLC’s Capstone Project, a cornerstone of our institutes, challenges Fellows to identify a project that captures their passion, fills a need in the community, and leverages the skills NLC provides through the Fellowship in order to come up with a plan to address it head on.

This is where NLC’s training effectively comes to life. Each year hundreds of progressive impact concepts are incubated inside the organization as we turn skills based training directly into new progressive capacity to improve communities and grow the movement. The organization leverages the networks, talents, skills, and experiences of local boards, alumni, and advisors to help Fellows drive these ideas into action and impact.
