Review for NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad, Greensboro, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been working with NCCJ and its flagship program, Anytown, since 2004, and it has made such an incredible impact in my life. I began as a shy, 15-year-old delegate at Anytown, and went on to become a counselor, NCCJ intern, and now a young professional working with a non-profit organization in Beijing, China. Anytown gave me a passion for helping others, a drive to make change, belief in myself as a leader and a second family I know I can always call on. Having been on both sides of the process, I see how NCCJ has helped shape me as a leader and how the students they work with can literally change before your eyes in a week on the mountain. It doesn't hurt that Anytown is also consistently one of the most fun experiences I've ever had. It may sound cliche, but NCCJ really does inspire and encourage young leaders, and I certainly would not be where I am today without it.
