Dallas Chapter

Place-Based. People-Powered. Training Dallas’s emerging leaders.

NLC Dallas trains cross-sector leaders who are committed to moving the communities they serve forward. We connect inclusive leaders who have the expertise to implement change, and provide the skills and network to make that progress a reality.


Since our founding, we’ve trained 79 leaders through the NLC Dallas Institute.


Amount raised in support of training place-based leadership development.

Being a NLC Dallas fellow gave me the opportunity to experience different perspectives. I was able to make friendships with members of my cohort that have gone well beyond our time as fellows.
