About Foothill Chapter
Capable. Caring. Confident. NCL, Inc, Foothill Chapter develops these traits in our members through community service, cultural events, and leadership. We help low-income families; seniors; the disabled, the environment; and cancer research. We also sponsor a scholarship for outstanding local high school students.
Celebrating 62 years of service in 2018, our chapter is one of the earliest, being charter in 1956, after Glendale (1951) and San Fernando Valley (1955).
The Foothill Chapter serves the communities of Upland, Claremont, La Verne and surrounding areas in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California. Our chapter usually has about 15 – 25 mother-daughter pairs in each grade level. We participate in activities as both grade-level classes and as a chapter.
Membership entails a commitment. Members must:
- Perform a minimum number of service hours
- Attend monthly meetings
- Participate in chapter events or service
- Meet the financial obligations of membership
Our members give to the community, but they also gain from membership. Benefits include:
- A framework to serve others. Most people want to volunteer, but few of us manage to organize this on our own. We make volunteering easy by setting up volunteer opportunities.
- Leadership skills and poise. Through experiences like serving as class officers, working on committees and speaking in public, members develop life skills.
- Credentials for college application. Daughters who complete the program accumulate hundreds of hours of community service, which is well regarded by colleges. Members also gain experience from mentoring opportunities.
- Strengthening bonds. We bring mothers and daughters together in meaningful experiences and foster friendships within the chapter.
