NCCJ Youth


Greetings from NCCJ ANYTOWN!

Learn how our programs have impacted youth alumni and inspired leaders in our communities. 


Sarah Nwafor, NCCJ ANYTOWN Alumni


 “I attended NCCJ ANYTOWN in October of 2016. It [NCCJ ANYTOWN] honestly changed my life for the better. Before I went, I was very quiet and I didn’t talk much about anything. ANYTOWN gave me something to be passionate about and it gave me a voice. Social Justice is now something that I can talk about for hours and hours on end.” 

“A few of the other students from my school started our schools action club and I was given a leadership role. Since then we have implemented a gender-neutral bathroom, anti-bullying week, a day of silence for victims of sexual assault, and much more.”

Social Justice Leaders 


“As a teacher, I know the transformative power of education. The work NCCJ does in the Northeast to empower and liberate youth and adults by educating them about the power structures that marginalize many and dehumanizes us all is invaluable. Their programs are the spark that will light the fire of a new generation of change agents.”

-Chris Peck, NCCJ ANYTOWN Alumni
