The Pope and Young Club Continues Support For The National Conservation Leadership Institute (NCLI)

The Pope and Young Club is proud to announce their continued support for the National Conservation Leadership Institute (NCLI) through the Club's Conservation, Education and Outreach fund. The grant awarded by the Pope and Young club will help support the mission and continued success of NCLI.

The NCLI 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. Our world is changing, socially, politically, and, yes, environmentally. Conservation efforts are facing unprecedented challenges, difficult questions of sustainability and organizational relevance, 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 sophisticated human element. Since its inception, the NCLI 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 the 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 extraordinary leadership will safeguard our legacy and 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.

"As Conservation Chair of the Pope and Young Club, it's truly an honor to award a grant to the National Conservation Leadership Institute through our 2017/2018 grant program," said Merritt Compton. "The NCLI has long been the gold standard in educating the conservation leadership of tomorrow. With a standing mission statement "to preserve the legacy of our natural resources by developing extraordinary conservation leadership" those words speak for themselves.

"For more information on the NCLI go to conservationleadership.org.
