National Charity League, Inc., and the Golden Gate Chapter are committed to empowering young women to be future leaders with purpose!

Golden Gate Chapter members have opportunities to engage in experiences that build essential skills, such as confidence, team building, event planning, conflict resolution and parliamentary procedure.

Each year of membership offers new opportunities for both Mothers (Patronesses) and Daughters (Ticktockers) to accept new challenges and learn new skills in a supportive environment. Ticktockers are encouraged to take on leadership roles in their respective grade levels, and Patronesses share their talents in chapter leadership roles.

Our members practice parliamentary procedure and conduct an annual nominations process to elect the chapter and grade level officer positions. We train our officers for success and mentor them throughout the year through our organized Peer Mentoring Program. It is this ongoing yearly support which exposes our daughters to various leadership styles and personalities from our adult peer mentors that help our daughters realize their fullest individual leadership potential.

In addition, we offer and host several meetings during the membership year and invite outstanding speakers at both the grade and chapter level.
