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.
We preserve National Charity League traditions and core values, while appreciating the growth that comes from connecting with different communities and cultures.
