Associate Board

NLCP’s Associate Board is the backbone of our community. These young leaders support NLCP through fundraising, mentoring and school services, and embody our mission while sharing their talents.

deron“I was immediately drawn to the purity of NLCP’s mission — to see their students through college, not just high school. The Associate Board has a real impact on that mission, mentoring students through the Phoenix Soar program and raising funds to send them on college visits.“ – Deron Nardo, NLCP Associate Board Chair

Pass It On!

This annual spring event, helps fund vital school services including summer enrichment programs for current students and care packages for alumni who are in college. Plus, it’s a great time! Last year’s PASS IT ON event raised $150,000 and 40 graduating seniors were celebrated.

Associate Board members mentor NLCP students to provide the thoughtful, caring counsel of another adult influence during life’s difficult transitions, plus someone to help celebrate when things are going well. They may also help secure donations of clothing or other items that NLCP students sometimes need.
