In 2021, the Council of Korean Americans (CKA) and Network of Korean American Leaders (NetKAL) merged to relaunch this prestigious leadership program in 2022. The merged organization is operating under the CKA name, preserving NetKAL as a key leadership development Fellowship program. Learn more about the merger here.
The 12th Cohort, known as NetKAL XII, will continue NetKAL’s legacy and CKA’s mission by including up-to 15 competitively selected Fellows to participate in the April – August 2023 leadership training program. Fellows will go through a transformative experience where they grow personally and professionally while also create lasting friendships and connections with fellow Korean American leaders.
So, if you get excited about joining a leadership training program where themes like Korean American identity, community service, mental health, and national leadership are essential parts of the curriculum; and are hungering for deeper connections with mentors and 1.5/2nd generation Korean American peers from varying sectors; then, you are ready to become a NetKAL Fellow!
