About our Chapter
The National Charity League, Inc. Middlesex Chapter includes Members from Concord and Carlisle, MA. We are committed to empowering women to make an impact in our community and in the lives of our Members. Through philanthropy, leadership development and strong mother-daughter relationships, we strive to develop leaders who will create positive change in their communities today and for generations to come.
Our mothers (called Patronesses) and daughters (called Ticktockers) in grades 7-12 take on and carry out the NCL, Inc. Mission, Vision and Core Values through a variety of event programs, leadership, and service opportunities. As a 100% volunteer organization, Membership in our Chapter requires a commitment of time and service, and carries a financial responsibility. All Patronesses hold a Chapter job each year and actively participate as leaders in the operational success of the Chapter.
The value of Membership in National Charity League, Inc. lasts a lifetime. Our Middlesex Chapter offers a unique and meaningful experience that brings women and girls together and promotes qualities of strong character and social responsibility with the goal of creating meaningful positive change.
The Ticktocker Experience
The Ticktocker experience is designed to be a small group leadership program that provides opportunities for young women to experience the joy of helping others, to learn tolerance and kindness, to mature and build confidence and to make friends while participating in these activities in a safe and comfortable environment.
The Patroness Experience
The Patroness experience offers an opportunity to strengthen the mother-daughter bond while working alongside our daughters. As Patronesses, we also aim to model the qualities we hope to encourage in our daughters: leadership, teamwork, strength of character and commitment to social responsibility.
Community Service: to promote social awareness, to support the needs of our community and to help meet those needs whenever possible.
Leadership: to enhance leadership skills through team building, problem solving, mentoring and group dynamics.
Cultural Experience: to encourage positive identity by recognizing and appreciating the value of differences in each other and the world.
