Leadership Longevity Fellowship: National Cohort

New Sector Alliance’s Leadership Longevity Fellowship is designed for mission-driven leaders focused on addressing the world’s most pressing challenges and opportunities.

What is the Leadership Longevity Fellowship?

The Leadership Longevity Fellowship (LLF) is bringing together mission-driven professionals across the United States for an innovative new leadership development program focused on career and life design, health and wellness, and creating a supportive community of peers.

This program uses a lens of longevity because we know that in order for you to do work that changes the world, you need support that helps you build lifelong skills and sustain your energy in order to continue impacting the communities you serve.

What is Included in the Leadership Longevity Fellowship?

  • Two in-person retreats, all expenses covered 

  • Virtual training sessions focused on developing frontline skills such as trauma-informed care for self and others, leading with empathy while maintaining boundaries, and intersectionality with equity and cultural competence 

  • One-on-one and group coaching from a health and wellness specialist 

  • A supportive community of peers, providing a safe place to discuss current workplace issues and promote relationship-building with fellow nonprofit leaders

  • Extend the Learning by Paying it Forward, which will consist of presentations of learnings back to fellows’ own communities 

  • Networking conversations with New Sector’s diverse network of nonprofit professionals to provide opportunities for collaboration, connection, mentorship, and building social capital
