Next Generation Leaders (NGL) Program

The success of the Internet is not an accident. And we cannot take its future for granted. That is why the Internet Society invests in the Next Generation of Internet leaders.

The Internet Society’s Next Generation Leaders (NGL) program aimed to help Internet professionals between the ages of *20 and 40 develop their leadership potential where technology, business, policy, and education intersect.

NGL participants gained a unique opportunity to advance their professional growth and build the experience and confidence they need to drive development in their own local communities and the larger Internet ecosystem. 

NGL blended coursework and practical experience to help prepare young professionals from around the world to become the next generation of Internet technology, policy, and business leaders. Check out what our NGL participants said about the programs.
