About Our Chapter

The Whittier Chapter was organized in 1967 and was incorporated in 1969 as a 501c (3) non-profit organization. We are composed of Patroness mothers and Ticktocker daughters whose mission is to foster the mother-daughter relationship in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.

Our chapter members reside in and serve the cities of Whittier, Hacienda Heights, La Habra Heights, La Habra and La Mirada. New membership of a Patroness mother is by sponsorship of a current member and begins in December. Typically, Ticktocker girls enter as incoming 7th graders during their 6th grade and remain until the graduation in 12th grade. Each Ticktocker class from 7th to 12th grade is comprised of elected Ticktocker officers. The Ticktockers are led by Patroness Grade Level Advisors through the NCL Six Year Experience, which focuses on personal development (life skills), leadership development (professional skills), cultural experiences (social skills) and community service (philanthropic awareness). Through a variety of age-appropriate and meaningful meetings and events our members are able to carry out the mission, vision and core values of NCL, Inc.

As a 100% volunteer organization, membership in the Whittier Chapter requires a commitment of time and service in addition to financial responsibility. All Patroness mothers hold a Chapter job each year and actively participate as leaders in the operational success of our Chapter. Although it is a big commitment, the value of membership in NCL, Inc. Whittier Chapter lasts a lifetime! It empowers women to make an impact in the lives of our members and more importantly in the lives of those in our community who are less fortunate. The NCL, Inc. experience is unique in that it bonds mothers and daughters together and engages their minds, hearts and talents to create a positive change in their local community.
