Calling All Leaders!

Emerging Leader Application Open!

If you are ready to grow your leadership skills to the next level, then NCSCA’s Emerging Leaders Program is just for you. Emerging Leaders have an opportunity to observe the inner workings of NCSCA’s Board of Directors as they plan and implement programs and supports for North Carolina’s School Counselors.

As a result of the experience, many of our Emerging Leaders have contributed their leadership and talents to the next level by serving NCSCA as President, President-Elect and Treasurer. One of our wonderful 2015-2016 Emerging Leaders, Mrs. Durenda Ward, is a finalist for ASCA’s 2016 School Counselor of the Year!

The potential is also there for you!!!

If you are interested, please submit your application to President-Elect LaJuana Norfleet at by January 30, 2016.

RAMP w/ President Christina Welch

RAMP with Me!

"As President of NCSCA I feel it's important to set a good example. Having said that I am STILL working on RAMP. Many of you are probably like me and have started, but have not been able to see it through to the finish line. To help with the RAMP I have set up a Google+ Community called "RAMP with me!". This community is for people to share resources, ask questions, support one another, and vent if needed."

*If you are RAMPed and would like to help those of us still on the journey please join as well! We would love to hear your advice and encouragement!!
