In the community

Since 2017, NECS has partnered with schools and community-based organizations to bring our programs into the community. Our programs are rooted in our commitment to empower young people to explore their innate capabilities and engage in social action.

NECS programs emphasize culturally relevant, creative and social-emotional learning through reflective and mindful practices.
