South Bay

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., South Bay 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 Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach or Redondo Beach. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, South Bay aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.




NCL is a national organization of mothers, called Patronesses, and daughters, called Ticktockers.


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.

    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.
