I grew up in the Twin Cities. I moved out to New York, and eventually to New Jersey, where I joined the New Leaders Council-New Jersey chapter. It was there that I met a cadre of people with the same kind of fire. The same desire to do something. I joined the 2014 Fellows, an impressive and prestigious group who cut across sectors and did everything from building affordable homes to harnessing an entrepreneurial spirit in high school students to leading national marijuana reform.
Throughout the Institute, I met with industry leaders who taught sessions on topics such as fundraising, technology, advocacy, community organizing and campaign management. I also had the opportunity to deeply bond with the alumni, Fellows and friends of the organization, share my passion projects and assist in advancing theirs. New Leaders Council is a community, locally and nationally. And it is this community that empowers the next generation of progressive leaders- those who are leading industries, setting trends, and building organizations that support civic and political life throughout the United States. NLC Fellows are shaping the landscape. They are political entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow.
New Leaders Council (NLC) was formed in 2005 to recruit Fellows from outside traditional power structures and equip them with the skills necessary to be civic leaders in their communities and workplaces. The Institute I mentioned is intensive ten day trainings over the span of five months where Fellows learn about cutting-edge entrepreneurship, leadership and political management skills from over 150 industry-leading volunteer faculty. At the close of the Institute, Fellows are paired with mentors who provide insight and guidance that take their passion and skills to the next level. It makes sense that the Twin Cities launches a New Leaders Council chapter as it is a hub for innovation, hard work, and progress. Nationally, we are joining an incredible network of like-minded, forward-thinking individuals who are committed to making their communities better because we know that only by working together can we truly make our communities, our cities, and our world better than they are today.
NLC is leading the way for the next generation who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of working together towards real, progressive change.
