Rhode Island Chapter

Place-Based. People-Powered. Training Rhode Island’s emerging leaders.

NLC Rhode Island trains cross-sector leaders who are committed to moving the communities they serve and our state forward. We connect inclusive leaders who have the expertise to implement change, and provide the skills and network to make that progress a reality. Our community is collaborative, reflects and celebrates Rhode Island’s diversity, and empowers risk-takers and advocates to take action for progress.
