New Leaders Council


Welcome to New Leaders Council - Louisiana.

As the state's leading training program for progressive millennials, NLC Louisiana tirelessly works to fortify Louisiana's progressive network. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit that recruits an annual cohort of promising progressives who are interested in sharpening and broadening their social entrepreneurship skills. Over the course of a curriculum lasting five weekends during the first half of each year, NLC fellows become equipped with the skills to run for office, manage campaigns, create start ups, and develop as thought leaders.

After completing the program, fellows become part of NLC's prolific, active, and diverse alumni network - trendsetters, elected officials and civically-engaged leaders in business and industry.

We believe in the possibility of a better, stronger Louisiana, and we believe the work we do today will help create a more promising tomorrow. Visit to learn about our national organization.
