ASA’s New Ventures in Leadership (NVL) celebrates a 20-year legacy of success. NVL holds an unparalleled position in the aging field as the only program of its kind—designed specifically to develop the next generation of leaders of color, and dedicated to improving the quality of life for people as they age. The program provides a learning platform and support system comprised of educational seminars and networking activities, as well as coaching and mentoring opportunities that enable NVL participants (referred to as Partners) to develop skills such as problem-solving, communication, navigating the aging network, avoiding pitfalls and overcoming challenges.
It is not just what NVL Partners learn through the program that benefits them directly; it is what they are inspired and equipped to do with that experience in communities and organizations across the country.
Whether it’s community outreach for healthier aging, spotlighting and narrowing disparities, or ensuring culturally appropriate services in underserved communities, NVL provides the framework and environment that enable NVL Partners to envision their impact and realize their power to make a positive difference in the lives of all older adults, including elders of color.
