Organization Overview

The American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute (AMCLI) empowers rising generations of American Muslim civic leaders with practical tools for leadership, conflict resolution, storytelling, and more.


From its inception, AMCLI has created an ecosystem of leaders who are more connected, effective, resilient, and collaborative for a greater collective impact. The AMCLI Leadership Program is currently building on its 15-year legacy of increasing the capacity and success of Muslim leaders from across the United States. To date, AMCLI has more than 360 fellows in their network, including from the most recent virtual AMCLI Leadership Program that was completed in September 2021. There were 108 fellows who took part in five cohorts of the National Fellowship, and another 252 participated in twelve cohorts of the Regional Fellowship. In 2021, AMCLI launched their inaugural Advisory Council, using the insights of 22 alumni to explore ways to expand the leadership pathways and strengthen the network.
