Building more just and compassionate communities for all of us – not just some of us.

NCCJ works to build more equitable communities free of bias, bigotry and racism. We serve students, educators, and organizations of all types and sizes. We also offer community programs, free and open to all. We can help you approach difficult topics from a place of curiosity and practice connecting more effectively with people who are different from you.

Ready for a Reset?

NCCJ’s Reset encourages you to make time and space for learning, unlearning, and discovering more effective social justice habits. It’s a FREE self-paced, email-based program. So you can do it whenever, wherever!

After you sign up, we will send you daily emails (with some breaks in between) for 3 weeks. Each day has a different focus and includes a few curated resources (podcasts, articles, videos) on about a topic chosen by our Youth Ambassadors. (Teen graduates of NCCJ programs like Anytown and STARR.)

5 practices for better conversations

To build a future where every community is a place of promise with opportunity and justice for all, we must all learn to engage with each other with civility and respect. That’s why NCCJ’s board of directors (a diverse group of people from across our community) invites you to join us in an initiative called Open Minds, Respectful Voices. It’s a set of 5 Community Practices that represent a commitment to engaging in more respectful dialogue and actively listening to understand others’ perspectives.

So much more than a summer camp

Rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors should apply now for Anytown 2022 (sessions are June 19-24 and July 17-22.) Anytown is a youth leadership and humans relation camp that gathers diverse groups of teens for an unforgettable week of learning about themselves and each other, celebrating differences, and finding common ground as they build an inclusive and compassionate community.

Inclusion takes intention.

Ready to make a difference?

NCCJ exists to serve you – and we exist because of you. In recent years, a record number of people have turned to us for help managing biases, advancing inclusion, and learning to have more respectful and effective conversations. Your investment and support is critical to sustain and grow NCCJ’s work and advance our mission.
