Acalanes Area Chapter

Drawing from the cities of Lafayette, Moraga, and Orinda, the Acalanes Area Chapter puts the mother­/daughter bond at the center of its focus.  Whether we are working together in the community, training our daughters to become leaders, or attending a cultural event or fine arts performance,we never forget that the mother­-daughter bond is the basis for what we do.  Side by side, we share our six year NCL experience with hundreds of mothers and daughters in our Chapter.

Whether you call it “strength in numbers,” “networking” or “being a good citizen,” our mothers and daughters travel through the same programs together, making great memories and bonding.  At the end of the six years, most of our daughters have contributed hundreds of hours to philanthropy work and are prepared to enter our community as thoughtful, strong women.

The NCL Experience changes lives by inspiring and empowering women to succeed as confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors in their communities.

Our Members

The NCL Experience is best told in the words and deeds of our members:

In our busy lives it’s so critical to slow down and do something for others, I love this.  The opportunities to have those experiences with my daughter and discuss them afterward, has been extremely rewarding.”

– Clare McDonald, Patroness

“NCL provides my daughters and I with the opportunity to spend time together serving our local community. It opens my daughters to a wider world. Our most valuable NCL experience thus far was serving lunch at the Bay Area Rescue Mission. Helping the men and women that BARM serves and seeing the work they’ve put into creating a solid foundation for their future was enlightening and very worth our time.”

– Fiona Artiaga, Patroness
