Next Generation Leadership (NGL), the Anti-Defamation League’s young leadership division, connects young professionals with meaningful opportunities to contribute and advocate on behalf of the ADL. NGL offers young professionals opportunities for networking and leadership development, dynamic social activities, educational programs, as well as the chance to make a genuine difference in people’s lives through meaningful community service and hands-on volunteer activities.

Glass Leadership Institute

The Glass Leadership Institute is a nationally recognized leadership development program for a select group of young professionals, providing an up-close and personal opportunity to expand their knowledge of ADL and its mission. GLI participants engage in nine months of dynamic, interactive sessions on a broad range of ADL topics.


Cocktails for Equality

NGL hosts a quarterly  social justice themed happy hour called Cocktails for Equality. Intended for young professionals who are either already involved with ADL or interested in learning more about the League, the program offers participants the opportunity to mix and mingle with their peers and hear from a speaker on an issue relevant to ADL’s agenda.


 Monthly Meal Service

Take action with NGL by joining our monthly meal service for individuals who are homeless in Philadelphia. Our local homeless population is often neglected due to stereotypes, stigma, intolerance and ignorance.  Volunteers meet at the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission at 301 N. 13th Street to contribute to ADL’s mission, “to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”



 The Anti-Defamation League is one of the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations agencies fighting anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defending democratic ideals and protecting civil rights for all.
