We cannot fix Illinois without passionate individuals willing to step up and get involved.

We are looking for future leaders in our communities. We are looking for individuals who have strong roots in their community and who are passionate about changing the direction of this state. We are looking for individuals who understand this will be incredibly difficult, at times frustrating and time consuming, but at the end of each day worth every minute and bead of sweat. We are looking for individuals with organic networks who are involved in their community. 

If you are a visionary and creative problem-solver. If you are fearless and brimming with new ideas. If you are undaunted by the challenge of fixing our broken state. Then apply to become a NXTgen Illinois Leader.
