Leadership Development

Leadership development is an important prong of the NCL experience. Through attending Ticktocker meetings and holding elected and appointment positions each year, Heart of Dallas Ticktockers gain important leadership experience, learn to communicate effectively, and build self-confidence. Their leadership positions, required for each Ticktocker, teach them to listen effectively, gain conflict resolution skills, and engage in public speaking, all of which prepare them for future community involvement and employment. NCL provides its Ticktockers with leadership opportunities that are often difficult for middle school and high school young women to find.
