a leadership pipeline

Own words

"We train and invest in leaders who are committed to moving the communities they serve and the country forward. Over the past 15 years, we’ve trained over 10,000 alumni from 50 chapters across the country, creating an ecosystem of place-based, proximate leaders making collective impact in their communities."

While our country faces a rise of extremist leaders who roll back our rights and restrict our bodies, NLC is the answer. We are a leadership pipeline that works. We connect and uplift the next generation ready to lead. We are the bench for the next candidates, organizers, and advocate. Because of NLC’s training and network, our alumni have the grit and the skills to run and win.

Its training "goes beyond one weekend, but rather provides six-month, no-cost training in both the skillsets and mindsets needed to make progress permament."[1]
