Here at RI New Leaders Council, we train the next generation of trailblazing political entrepreneurs – civically engaged, socially conscious change makers.
That means no matter whether our people are launching startups, fostering thriving non-profits, or being stellar public servants, they’re focused on the welfare of our larger Rhode Island community. The holiday season is a perfect time to take stock of how we’re improving Little Rhody and brainstorm a wish list for 2016.
At the top of our wish list is that you come celebrate our 5th year anniversary with us! Scroll to the bottom of this blog for details and make sure to RSVP, we want to see you there. What we’ll be celebrating is at the heart of every progressive in Whoville – starting truly paradigm-shifting change with an inspired community.
Over the past five years we’ve had lots of success in planting some remarkable seeds of change. As many of us huddle around a fireplace drinking eggnog, one example that we can be proud of is NLC Alum Omar Bah, the founder of Refugee Dream Center in RI. Omar has been a strong advocate for refugees, especially as the debate over Syrian refugees rages in national political discourse. Omar is just one example of the over 80 leaders we’ve provided our premiere leadership development training to over the past five years and we’re excited about the growth and impact the next five years will bring!
What is on your wish list of change? We need your ideas, your passion, and your financial support to provide this one-of-a-kind training to leaders outside the traditional power structure.
Join our fantastic board, alumni, and community partners to celebrate and meet our newest 2016 Fellows, just about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. Here are the details, RSVP today:
