NCC is seeking volunteers to work with first time truancy offenders and their families. The goal of the program is to divert truant students from further involvement in the Juvenile Justice System. The family meets with a panel of volunteers to establish the root of the truancy problem. Together the student, family, and the NCC panel of volunteers develop a positive action plan for the student. All volunteers are trained.
