Each year each Ticktocker class has a variety of different focuses. Beginning in the 7th grade the Ticktockers explore leadership styles and NCL, Inc. core values. In 8th grade they learn to communicate more effectively and lead their grade level meetings. As 9th graders, the girls further develop their listening skills, practice time management tools, and build self-confidence. The 10th graders learn to strengthen conflict resolution skills, prepare for future employment, and engage in public speaking. In 11th grade the Ticktockers establish future goals and identify college opportunities. Lastly, as seniors the Ticktockers mentor the younger grade levels and prepare for graduation.
As future leaders, we continually strive to build stronger ties with our communities and the individuals within them. It is through this understanding that we grow and develop broader worldviews that will shape and support our lives.
Mothers and daughters of each class attend a cultural experience together with a focus on different areas of art, theatre, dance and music.
Each Chapter celebrates the richness of its history through traditions that honor the past. The Mother Daughter Tea is an NCL, Inc. tradition. Today, NCL chapters around the country continue to embrace their long-standing traditions, as well as, create new ones.
