The NCL Experience inspires and empowers women to succeed as confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors in their communities.
Each Chapter develops its own six-year plan, which includes a variety of age appropriate and meaningful programming opportunities for daughters, called Ticktockers, as well as for mothers, called Patronesses.
Each Ticktocker grade level is organized by elected Ticktocker officers and coached by a Patroness acting as a Grade Level Advisor. The activities designated on the six-year plan are organized for Personal Development (life skills), Leadership Development (professional skills) and Cultural Competency (social skills). In addition to working closely with daughters and supporting their local communities, all Patronesses hold a Chapter job each year and actively participate as leaders in the operational success of the Chapter.
