Leadership Development

Members have opportunities to engage in experiences that build essential skills, such as confidence, consensus and team building, event planning, conflict resolution and parliamentary procedure.

As leadership development is central to the mission of National Charity League, Inc., it is our goal  to develop young women to be leaders in all aspects of their lives.  This begins shortly after joining the chapter as newly inducted provisional members assume leadership roles within their grade level activities.

Class groups elect leaders to act as class officers each year. Officers are mentored by Grade Level Advisors as Ticktockers develop skills to lead their class throughout the 6 year commitments. The girls lead their own meetings, plan cultural events and philanthropies, set the direction for their class activities for the year and make decisions on the use of class funds.
