Members shall reside in Greater Salt Lake Area. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Salt Lake City aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

Daughters participate with their mothers for up to six-years beginning in 7th grade and going through their senior year of high school but the relationships and memories last a lifetime.

Community Service

Each NCL, Inc. Chapter promotes social awareness by considering the local community’s needs and selecting appropriate non-profit organizations to serve.  Each Chapter then supports its philanthropic service partners through different volunteer activities.

We work with the following philanthropies:

  • International Rescue Committee
  • American Heart Association
  • Best Friends Animal Society
  • Christmas Box House
  • Circles Salt Lake (8th Grade Focus)
  • Fisher House
  • Girls on the Run Utah
  • Jewish Community Center (JCC)
  • Kindness Campaign
  • Neighborhood House (11th Grade Focus)
  • Operation Gratitude
  • Tennis & Tutoring (Dry Creek)
  • The Children’s Center

  • The Sharing Place
  • Utah Arts Festival
  • Utah Food Bank (7th Grade Focus)
  • Utah Pride Center
  • Volunteers of America (12th Grade Focus)
  • YWCA Utah (9th grade focus)

The Salt Lake City chapter is extremely proud of the scope of charities we assist. As you’ll note above, there are many different opportunities to help others from chapter-wide philanthropic events with all of our mothers and daughters, service projects with mother and daughter duos and grade level Ticktocker-only events. Last year our chapter recorded thousands of volunteer hours locally and was part of the three-million hours volunteered nationwide.

Leadership Development

Nurturing confidence through opportunities to learn and grow, while also building problem-solving skills through a supportive environment of healthy relationships.

Examples of skills developed include:

  • Confidence
  • Consensus building
  • Team building
  • Conflict resolution
  • Event planning
  • Parliamentary procedure

Developing leadership skills in our daughters is a fundamental part of NCL, Inc. The Leadership Council manages the daughter side of our chapter, and every young woman holds a committee position that helps organize meetings, plan activities, help set up philanthropic events, and much more.
The time spent in NCL, Inc, teaches young women responsibility and integrity, as well as caring and compassion. The experience they gain will not only stand out on a college application, but will also help them become strong, capable and confident women in today’s world.

Cultural Experiences

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.

We encourage diverse cultural experiences to create an environment that nurtures positive identity by recognizing and appreciating the value of differences in each other and the world. We support exposure to culturally diverse people and events to broaden perspectives, promote awareness and teach cultural sensitivity. Some time-honored NCL, Inc. traditions are cultural activities designed to teach members inclusion, respect of others, and self-assuredness in social settings.

The Salt Lake City Chapter was chartered in 1977 and was the first chapter outside of California.
