New Leaders Council


New Leaders Council Washington DC was founded in 2008. Since its inception, the chapter has graduated more than 150 Fellows -- young, up-and-coming progressive trendsetters, elected officials and civically-engaged leaders in business and industry focused on shaping the future landscape of not only the nation’s capital, but the entire country and abroad.



NLC recruits Fellows from outside traditional power structures and equips them with the skills necessary to be civic leaders in their communities and workplaces. Our mission is realized primarily through the NLC Institute -- the nation’s premiere political entrepreneurship training program.

NLC is creating an exciting network of individuals, highly-skilled in working together across sectors to improve the progressive infrastructure and ensure strong democracy, social justice and equal opportunity.

Our graduates are an ever-expanding corps of diverse, new progressive leaders rising to the top of their respective fields.
