The Pope and Young Club Helps Fund the National Conservation Leadership Institute (NCLI)

The Pope and Young Club Conservation, Education and Outreach fund has awarded a grant to the National Conservation Leadership Institute (NCLI). The grant will help support the mission and continued success of NCLI.

The National Conservation Leadership Institute is a small organization, focused on developing the men and women who are working, hands-on every day, to find solutions to North America’s biggest conservation challenges. Helping them do what they do best wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of sponsoring organizations and individuals from across the conservation community.

Our world is changing, socially, politically, and, yes, environmentally. Across conservation we are facing unprecedented challenges, difficult questions of sustainability and organizational relevancy, funding shifts and climate change. At the heart of all of these, we find ourselves wrestling not only with the science-based issues our organizations possess the knowledge to resolve but also with the increasingly complex human element. Since its inception in 2005, the National Conservation Leadership Institute has been guided by a single question: “What will it take to prepare our future leaders?” The answer has consistently remained linked with providing a truly unique curriculum with an emphasis on participant diversity, viewing leadership through a multifaceted lens, and a willingness to embrace self-organization as a means of tackling adaptive challenges. As a result, the NCLI is one of the most far-reaching professional development initiatives ever undertaken within the natural-resource conservation community, providing an unparalleled experience for developing extraordinary leadership at that right moment in history.

The NCLI vision states that: “Because of the National Conservation Leadership Institute, conservation leadership in the future will be widely regarded as one of America’s greatest strengths. From the smallest government agency to the largest conservation federation, there will be a shared confidence that our legacy is safeguarded by extraordinary leadership with a conservation mission.”

The Institute is designed to be a meta-program into which graduates of various internal organizational leadership programs could expand their leadership capacity. But the Institute is by no measure only a training program; it is a unique comprehensive learning experience designed to challenge assumptions, teach skills, facilitate networking, and strengthen confidence, preparing extraordinary leadership for the future.
