NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad is an important and significant partner with Guilford County Schools, and we are most appreciative of the services and support NCCJ provides. NCCJ is very active in working with students and staff on creating more positive, supportive and inclusive school environments. School climate has a huge impact on student learning and achievement as wel as well-being. On a personal note, my daughter attended Any Town and is an active volunteer with the organization. NCCJ has increased her awareness of important community issues and has provided an avenue for getting involved in social justice advocacy. NCCJ has also provided a great network of other young people who are interested in and committed to fighting bias, bigotry and discrimination. Nora Carr, chief of staff, Guilford County Schools.
