I am the Graduation Coach at Northeast High School. Our Human Relations club has participated in several events with NCCJ. Each time our students attend an event, they are affected in such a positive manner. We always enjoy the relevant and lively sessions that challenge our students to think outside of the box of their pre-set mindsets. As an educator, I believe greatly in the work that NCCJ does and have witnessed on many occassions how students are motivated and blossom as a result of attending NCCJ events. We have had an opportunity for students to attend the summer ANYTOWN conference and the change that takes place in these students is short of a miracle. The students return home with a new found sense of self and the awareness exudes in their demeanor when they return to school in the Fall. I personally believe that NCCJ helps teens to navigate the challenges that come with transitioning into young adulthood.
NCCJ was very instrumental in hosting the Community Conversations for Youth in the City of Greensboro. The youth facilitators were very eager and articulate.
