Protests and movements for change attended as a chapter.

I get the honor of not only being surrounded by so many bad ass people who support the things that I hold close to my heart but I have the privilege of calling them family.⁣

– Brioana Jenkins (she/her)
2019 NLC Austin Fellow

The New Leaders Council Fellowship experience is transformational. I came in with only a hint of NLC had to offer. On the other side of the fellowship, I have a tribe. Life-long friends who I’ve been able to grow and work with. You’ll definitely learn a lot at NLC, but the most important thing you’ll gain is relationships!
