About our NCL South Bay Chapter:

The South Bay Chapter was formed in 2014 and in 2020, our chapter graduated the first class that completed all six years of the program. Our goal is to promote a sense of shared responsibility in our daughters and strengthen our bond while growing together, sharing our time and energy, and improving our community.

  • The National Charity League, Inc., South Bay Chapter was founded on September 29, 2014, becoming the 196th Chapter.
  • Our Chapter began with 155 mothers and daughters representing 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th grade classes from the cities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach. The Chapter was chartered on March 12, 2016.
  • Our Chapter was started by 11 South Bay mothers who wanted to create a new legacy for mothers and daughters to serve their community together.
  • Our Chapter was supported by Expansion Advisor Heather Schuchert, a former President of the National Charity League, Inc., Peninsula Chapter.
  • We are comprised of mothers, called Patronesses, and daughters, called Ticktockers.
  • Our founding Ticktocker classes represented eight schools: Hermosa Valley School, Manhattan Beach Middle School, Chadwick School, Mira Costa High School, Redondo Union High School, American Martyrs School, Marlborough School, Marymount High School.

    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.
