Choose Kindness

NCCJ asks you to choose kindness

On Giving Tuesday, you helped us make the world a more equal and inclusive place to live. You chose kindness, and it showed! 

There's still time to support NCCJ during this season of giving. The smallest donation can make a huge difference. Give the gifts of empowerment, education and community to young people seeking to build a more equal and inclusive world.

NCCJ Says Goodbye to M’Liss

We are sad to say that our Director of Youth Programs M'Liss DeWald will be leaving NCCJ Tuesday, July 11. She’ll be moving back to her birthplace of Washington state to begin another chapter in her already exceptional life. 

“These last four years have been a gift in so many ways; mostly meeting and spending time with phenomenal people. Especially my NCCJ ANYTOWN family, that is ever growing and always full of love. I will carry the lessons and memories from NCCJ, CT and MA with me forever,” DeWald said in a statement on Facebook.
