Next Generation Leaders Program 2019-20 in USA

The McCain Institute’s flagship program 2019 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.

Geared to mid-career professionals, this yearlong, fully funded professional development program empowers emerging global leaders through the McCain Institute’s tailored professional development experience. The program offers a unique blend of professional development, exposure to top-level policymakers and formal training in leadership. At four junctures throughout the year, the program provides hands-on training focused on values, ethics and leadership, media and communications skills; and best practice examples of American business, political and civic life. A key aspect of the program is each NGL’s preparation of an individual Leadership Action Plan (LAP). Aimed at defining the tangible steps and actions the NGLs will take to bring about positive change in their home communities, the LAP becomes the central project of the development year.

Following the initial training and coaching module in Washington, NGLs depart for their placements sites across the United States to professionally develop in areas relevant to their future goals while providing a broadening experience. For example, an international journalist may receive placement in a major American newspaper city desk, a national government executive in a mayor’s office or a political activist in a community-based organization. All placement sites are chosen by the McCain Institute.

A critical element of NGL Program participation is the follow-through on each and every Leadership Action Plan. To track LAP success and maintain contact among NGLs and the McCain Institute, each participant becomes a member of the exclusive NGL Global Network. As the Institute links successive classes of leaders together, it creates an international network of advocates for common core values of security, economic opportunity, freedom and human dignity.
