New Leaders Council-Montana – Training Montana’s Community Leaders since 2009
New Leaders Council – Montana is a free progressive leadership training institute. One weekend per month over 6 months, our fellows develop skills that will increase their positive impact in our state. Our graduates have founded non-profits, served in public office (we currently have 5 alumni serving in the MT Legislature!), opened businesses, and continue to be strong community and business leaders.
NLC Montana alumni currently serving in the Montana Legislature.
Since 2009, we have trained over 150 place-based leaders in Montana.
“My NLC fellowship was one of the most impactful experiences of my life. I frequently rely on the skills that NLC taught me in my work on a statewide campaign, and the network of change-makers that I connected with during my time at NLC has served as an incredible support system. Not to mention that I am currently working with another NLC alumni elected to statewide office. I am incredibly grateful to be an NLC alum.”
NLC-MT seriously restored my faith in humanity. Every fellow I have met fights so hard every day to create a Montana that I was proud to call home, and the board members at the time were so dedicated and passionate that I knew I wanted to continue to help out.
“NLC immersed me in a crowd of passionate, driven, brilliant individuals who inspired me to action and growth. I made amazing new allies (and friends!) across Montana that share my values and are cooperating to make the world better. Skills I developed in NLC have become the tools I use regularly to advocate for issues, and now run for office.”
