Over 400 Young Leaders Tapped for Country’s Premiere Training Program
MIAMI, FL – 01/08/2013
New Leaders Council Chairman Chris Kelly is proud to announce the 2013 Institute class of outstanding, young leaders.
As a result of another record-breaking year for NLC Institute applications, this year’s selected Fellows class is characterized by their accomplishments as well as their diversity – in gender, ethnicity, geography and profession.
“As an organization, we could not be more excited about the caliber of this year’s Institute classes. Once again, our chapters have set an exceptionally high bar on the quality and talent level of the Fellows they have recruited.
I am extremely confident this class of leaders will emerge more prepared than ever to become incredibly influential and to make a positive difference in their communities,” Kelly said.
New Leaders Council Institute is the premier leadership and professional development, training, mentoring, networking, and career and political advancement program for young professionals. An intense, five-month progressive entrepreneurship training program, each NLC Institute is highly-selective, admitting only 15 to 20 fellows to each program. Each NLC chapter holds an Institute annually, often engaging local leaders to conduct sessions to create a uniquely-tailored experience where fellows learn from guest speakers at the top of their field.
It’s clear that NLC, is getting noticed for the monumental role it is playing in America’s future. The NLC network will reach nearly 2,000 alumni upon graduation this spring of the 2013 Institute class. Along with our Ambassadors and supporters, NLC is impacting the landscape coast-to-coast.
Proof of our emerging national influence can be seen in a recent op-ed in Washington Monthly, where NLC was noted as “strikingly different” and, “planting seeds where few others…bother to tread.”
On Sunday’s airing of Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC, NLC, along with Project New America, was said to be one of, “…Two good things that are happening,” in the progressive electoral landscape.
