Next Generation Leaders (NGL) program
The McCain Institute’s flagship program is the Next Generation Leaders (NGL) program, designed to identify, train, network and empower a diverse group of emerging, character-driven leaders from the United States and around the world.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Applicants should be in their mid-career, possess working proficiency in English with a high-degree of professional, academic and work achievements. Aspiring Next Generation Leaders (NGLs) must demonstrate commitment to highest level of ethical leadership, show decisive recommendations that substantiate their leadership qualities, and make a commitment to return to their home environment at the end of the program year. To determine if you are a competitive candidate for the NGL Program, please review the biographies of previous Leaders on our website.
What is a Leadership Action Plan?
A Leadership Action Plan (LAP) is a detailed plan of character-driven action for implementation that creates change in your home environment that impacts the public, private or social sector. NGLs are expected to implement their LAP upon the conclusion of the initial program year.
How long is the program? What are the start and end dates?
The program is year-long and begins in early September and runs through the end of August of the following calendar year. Participants are expected to be in the United States for the entire program year and attend all four leadership development modules along with contributing at their placement organizations to gain the full NGL experience.
What are the expectations of an NGL for the program year?
NGLs are expected to be present and actively participating during all program modules in Washington D.C., New York and Arizona. NGLs are expected to work at their placement organizations and to positively contribute to the organization’s overall mission and goals. NGLs must develop and refine their Leadership Action Plans for implementation after the program year. Finally, following the initial program year, NGLs are called on to be active members in the NGL Global Network and to inform the the Institute on a bi-annual basis of the status of their LAPs and their impact in their home environments.
