Lovejoy

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Lovejoy 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 or attend school in the Lovejoy ISD area. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Lovejoy aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

The vision of NCL Inc. is to connect hearts, hands and minds so that every community thrives. Our membership is comprised of girls, known as Ticktockers, in grades 7-12 and their mothers, known as Patronesses.

During your membership in NCL Inc., Lovejoy Chapter, the Ticktockers participate in a six-year program. This program focusses on NCL Inc’s three pillars: Community Service, Leadership Development and Cultural Experiences. This six-year program emphasizes the core values of NCL Inc.:

  • Strengthening the mother-daughter bond
  • Empowering women with the skills and confidence to mentor & lead
  • Inspiring a legacy of social awareness and compassion
  • Providing depth of support in local communities
  • Honoring a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Modeling integrity, graciousness, and excellence

Each Ticktocker grade level is organized by Ticktocker Officers and other leadership positions, while coached by Patronesses acting as Grade Level Advisors. Under this guidance, Ticktockers learn to plan and run their own meetings and grade-level events.  

In addition to working closely with daughters and supporting their local communities, all Patronesses hold a Chapter job each year and actively participate as leaders in the operational success of the Chapter. We are a 100% volunteer organization and rely on all members to be a successful Chapter.
