Membership

Join our Membership! Please contact us if your organization:

  • Serves students from Northern California
  • Focuses on equity
  • Provides some combination of scholarship and programmatic support for students

Oakland Promise’s involvement in the coalition allows us to add to the overall mission of NCCPC — to support more students from underrepresented communities. There is power in joining together with other Promise organizations to support that goal.

— Rachel Westmoreland, Interim Executive Director for Oakland Promise

I love the amazing connections made through NCCPC

— Sally Buchanan, Special Projects for Rancho Cordova Promise

“NCCPC is changing the odds. It’s more than a coalition – it’s a demonstration and a MOVEMENT that brings community-rooted expertise to drive policy and partnerships that will shape trajectories of opportunity for students and communities for generations to come. It’s a privilege to be part of it!!”

— Jessie Stewart, Director of Community Engagement & Partnerships, UC Berkeley Cameron Institute for Student Athlete Development, Prior Executive Director for Richmond Promise
