This Mother/Daughter Organization has made such an impact in my daughter's life as well as my own. The many experiences I have gained through National Charity League are invaluable. Whether it be collecting food for local food banks, volunteering at the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk, preparing backpacks for kids for Back to School or many other volunteer efforts - we would never have had the opportunity to do so much for our community if it had not been for National Charity League Rancho Irvine. Besides the satisfaction of helping people, National Charity League has also taught my daughter so much about leadership and has definitely given her skills that she will need in the future. There are so many positive aspects of NCL - I just wish there was one for Mothers and Sons.

National Charity League has been a wonderful opportunity to serve along side my daughter, as well as other mother/daughter teams, to make an impact in our community. The service opportunities have been amazing, diverse and multicultural. NCL teaches leadership skills, organizational skills, and most importantly, compassion. It has been an honor to be a part of such a fabulous organization.

My daughter and I joined Rancho Irvine NCL to order to have the opportunity to be involved with the many charities that they help support. It is a true honor to be part of an organization that raises and donates thousands of dollars to many charities in the community. What I didn't realize is that by initially belonging to give back, we have recieved so much in the process! There are amazing mothers involved who are wonderful role models for our young, impressionable daughters. The opportunities for philanthropy, leadership and cultural activities together and in peer groups are invaluable!

The NCL - Rancho Irvine Chapter provides an excellent opportunity for Moms and Daughters to connect and grow not just in their relationship, but in their leadership and philanthropic community involvement. This Chapter has not only provided thousands of hours of service to local philanthropies, but has raised money and awareness year after year. To see young girls grow into young women who understand what it takes to bring service to a community is inspiring. It is truly an honor to be associated with an organization that brings together mothers, their daughters and the community in a way that benefits everyone involved.

This organization is a mother daughter led group whose mission is to foster this beautiful relationship through philanthropy, leadership development and cultural awareness. It has one of he best philanthropy based and leadership development programs in the nation, and is the only one of its kind offered to mothers and daughters.
