About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Carmel Chapter is a group of mothers and daughters who have come together in a commitment to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.
Members shall reside in the attendance zone for Carmel ISD Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Carmel aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

People often ask, “What is NCL?”. It’s hard to describe because NCL has so many layers and provides many unique paths to walk. To me, it’s a six-year journey we walk through with our daughters during the most impressionable time in their lives. In NCL, both mothers and daughters are provided the time to make new friends, develop leadership skills, and give back to the community in meaningful ways. If we embrace all that NCL offers, our daughters will enter adulthood with the life skills needed to take on the world and serve the community with a gracious spirit. It’s a phenomenal organization, and I am beyond grateful to be a part of it! ~Jaime Medley, Past President, NCL Carmel Chapter
