Application Period Now Open for the NAA Next Generation Leadership Institute

Applications are being accepted for the spring 2018 session of the NAA Next Generation Leadership Institute (NGLI).

NGLI uses the NAA Model of Afterschool Leadership Development. This 20-week program includes personalized leadership assessment, one-on-one coaching, collaborative virtual learning experiences and cutting-edge communications tools and techniques immediately applicable to leaders and their teams.

NGLI allows emerging leaders in afterschool to grow their leadership skills by:

  • Focusing on results, the actions required to produce those results and the role that each of us–as leaders–plays in this process
  • Cultivating emotional intelligence through greater self-awareness
  • Increasing the ability to work with and manage others
  • Connecting with other talented leaders from around the country

Any NAA member interested in building their leadership community by participating in NGLI can download and submit an application. Applications are due by Friday, March 2, 2018. The Spring session begins in March 2018.
