GNL is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing proven leaders with the opportunity to learn firsthand about Collier County’s challenges and to encourage the use of their skills individually and collectively in addressing these needs and bettering the community.

Now in its third decade, GNL participants enrich their lives through first-hand learning experiences, rewarding relationships with likeminded individuals and access to board and volunteer roles.
