Cardinal members have opportunities to engage in experiences that build essential skills. Each year, every Ticktocker class focuses on a different aspect of leadership. Beginning in 7th grade the Tictockers (daughters) explore leadership styles and NCL, Inc., core values. In 8th grade they learn to communicate more effectively and lead their grade level meetings. As 9th graders, the girls further develop their listening skills, practice time management tools, and build self-confidence. The 10th grade Ticktockers learn to strengthen conflict resolution skills, prepare for future employment, and engage in public speaking. In 11th grade the Ticktockers establish future goals and identify college opportunities. Lastly, as seniors this class mentors the younger Ticktockers.
Our programs assist Ticktockers in building and maximizing their potential to be confident role models by embracing “who they are” – which empowers their personal sense of purpose and increases their ability to be more effective advocates for others.
