Celebrating 30 Years!

 NCAS_30Years

Welcome to the NCAS website where you will meet our team, learn about our pioneering programs and, hopefully, be inspired to join us in action as we work toward fulfilling our mission to “use the power and appeal of sport to affect positive social change in society.” We believe that sport can heal communities, help right wrongs, teach us about social justice issues, inspire us and show others not directly involved in sport how to do more in their own communities.

The average tenure of our staff is more than 20 years because they are convinced they can help young people believe in what they cannot see, build a floor on the despair that plagues the lives of so many of our youth, and build a roof over their dreams so they can feel safe in pursuing what seems impossible. I am proud to be part of a team of leaders who have spent their lives pursuing social justice using the platform of sport. Enjoy getting to know them. Use their inspiration.

Our programs have won the Peter F. Drucker Foundation Award as the nation’s most innovative non-profit program and recognized by the Bill Clinton Administration as a “model for violence prevention.” Unlike traditional workshops, our programs are interactive in nature; engaging the audience in scenarios, case studies, role plays, videos, and many more interactive activities.
