We are here because we believe in a better future and a better Arkansas.
The mission of NLC Arkansas is to train, equip and establish an inclusive and equitable community of diverse leaders from all parts of Arkansas and to advocate for statewide change. We believe that we need to invest in the leaders of tomorrow in Arkansas; not just future candidates and politicos, but educators, civic leaders, nonprofit leaders, social entrepreneurs, business leaders, and philanthropic advocates.

NLC Arkansas has been the catapult for my career. The leadership development & guidance I received, plus the community and network NLC created with the fellows has been instrumental in my growth as an executive. NLC has been transformational for me.
