New Leaders Council

The Challenge

To recruit, train, promote and create a network of Progressive leaders in a way parallel to what Conservatives have been doing for the last generation through The Leadership Institute…
  • Since 1979, The Leadership Institute has trained more than 101,062 conservatives to succeed in government, politics, and the media, and launched many careers in politics.
  • As of 2010, the Leadership Institute had an operating budget of $12.5 Million, allowing them to produce a number of young, like-minded individuals that work in the various aspects of the political environment.


  • Including Spring 2016 graduates, New Leaders Council has trained over 3,000 new leaders since 2006.
  • NLC has Institutes in 40 regions, including recently added chapters in Texas, Florida, and New York.
  • Since 2011, we have been setting records for fundraising, receiving over $750,000 in donations, and for recruit nominations, receiving over 8,000. In 2017, we look forward to raising over $1,000,000 to fund trainings led by existing and new chapters.
