Leadership development is a core component of the NCL experience. Over the course of their six years in NCL, we watch our daughters blossom into accomplished young women ready to take on the world.
One of the ways we foster leadership and learning is through our annual Ticktocker Day, a Del Sol chapter tradition where Ticktockers come together and focus on philanthropy, leadership and personal development. The theme for our most recent Ticktocker Day was Game On and represented the girls rolling up their sleeves, bringing their best self to NCL and joining in to help others in their community. Motivational speaker, Lex Gillette, a blind paralympian came to speak and inspired the Ticktockers to set goals, aim for the stars and realize there is no limit to what they can achieve if they have a vision.
Each Ticktocker class has Board Officers and Appointed positions. Members have opportunities to engage in experiences that build essential skills, such as confidence, consensus and team building, event planning, conflict resolution and parliamentary procedure. Every Ticktocker is encourage to serve on the grade level Board at least once during her years in NCL.
