New Leaders Council

NLC Spark! Talks



One of the highlights of this summer’s NLC National Leadership Retreat was the launch of NLC Spark! Talks, 5-minute presentations from members of our 44-chapter community on topics that ignite their passion for social justice, immigration reform, empowering all people to serve our country, and more. These Spark! Talks have already been viewed thousands of times on our social media platforms, and we could not be more excited about the impact these leaders are having in their communities. Below you can find the first four NLC Spark! Talks, and be sure to check the NLC YouTube page as more get added.
