The pundits often describe our country as fractious and disconnected - but Americans' commitment to strengthen our communities through service reflects a far different story via McClatchy.

Exploring what makes America great by asking "What if everyone knew they could make a difference?"
Introduction
At the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC), we believe everyone has the power to make a difference in how their community and country thrive.

We are a dynamic, non-partisan nonprofit working at the forefront of our nation’s civic life. We continuously explore what shapes today’s citizenry, define the evolving role of the individual in our democracy, and uncover ways to motivate greater participation. Through our events, research, and reports, NCoC expands our nation’s contemporary understanding of what it means to be a citizen. We seek new ideas and approaches for creating greater civic health and vitality throughout the United States.

NCoC was chartered by Congress in 1953 to harness the patriotic energy and national civic involvement surrounding World War II, and we’ve been invigorated by this charge ever since. In 2009, Congress recognized the importance of our role once again and expanded our Civic Health Assessment to become the nation’s largest and most definitive measure of civic engagement. Today, we continue to discover and share best practices in civic engagement.

We convene an annual conference, facilitate thought leader working groups, and leverage social media platforms to share our discoveries, energize discussions, and stimulate new approaches that strengthen modern citizenship. We call attention to what we learn, make it applicable to our partners’ action planning, and help them take an evidence-based approach for their work.

We are passionate about collaboration and collective civic progress. This enables us, as well as our cross-sector network of partners, to enhance the prosperity and civic vitality of our local communities and our nation as a whole.
