Are you interested in social justice, volunteering, community outreach, and volunteering?  Apply to be on an NCDC committee!  Applications are open for Community Outreach, Dialogues, Public Relations, Publicity, and Advocacy committees.

NCDC is Northwestern’s premiere student-run volunteer organization, with special emphasis on awareness and advocacy of the issues pertinent to the sites where students perform direct service.  We encourage volunteers to grow beyond their time at sites, providing opportunities for students to learn about, learn from, and develop projects with their site in a mutually-beneficial way.  As a Committee Member, you will be helping to coordinate thought-provoking and educational opportunities for other Northwestern students.

Applications must be turned in by October 5th 11:59pm to ncdc@u.northwestern.edu.  Applicants will also take part interviews for each committee to which they apply, all of which will take place the week of October 6thand the committee heads will contact about signing up for a specific time.  Both the application and the interview are required, but the most substantial part of the application process will be this application.  Applicants are encouraged to apply for as many committees as are of interest to them, from just 1 to all 5!  If applying to multiple committees, please rank in order of preference on the application.   Applicants will be notified of the decisions regarding committees no later than Friday, October 12th.

A Time for Community

Members of NCDC,

Northwestern Community Development Corps has always strived to help build community within Evanston and the greater Chicago area. At this point and time, we feel that there is a need for that more than ever. Aside from volunteering at a site or attending a social justice speaker, being a part of NCDC means you inherently care about the Northwestern community. Therefore, please continue reading below and understand that we are writing this with the hope that you – the civically engaged members of NCDC – would want to help to the best of your abilities.

While we try to keep any emails to you to be strictly about what goes on in NCDC, right now there’s a situation requiring our attention and respect: Harsha Maddula is still missing. If you have not yet heard about his disappearance, you can read and update yourself here and here. As co-chairs of NCDC, we are asking all of you, members of NCDC, to take some time out of your day and help with the search. His family needs to see that the Northwestern community cares about him. Harsha is a fellow Wildcat; please consider what would happen if this was your roommate or best friend – and then we hope you understand why the act of helping is so paramount to the cause.

Today, please meet us at 4 PM at 600 Haven St. (Seabury) for a Northwestern-wide event – a search party to find Harsha. We need to be engaged, we need to be committed, and we need to help bring Harsha home.

NCDC’s motto is “Be A Part of Something Bigger.” Let’s go do that.

If you have any questions or would like to talk, please feel free to reach either of us via email, ncdc@u.northwestern.edu.

Thank you for time and understanding.

Amalia Namath & Stephanie Kim

Co-Chairs, Northwestern Community Development Corps

Don’t miss GASLAND and award-winning director Josh Fox

11 May
by NCDC, posted in News   |  No Comments

Join NCDC and SEED for a screening of the dramatic documentary GASLAND and a conversation with the award-winning director, Josh Fox.

Tuesday, May 17th
Harris Hall 107
7-8:30 PM Screening
8:30-9 PM Conversation with Fox

RSVP on Facebook

GASLAND is a dramatic documentary about the damaging environmental and social impacts of natural gas drilling, a highly intensive process known as ‘fracking.’

After director Fox received a a letter from a natural gas company interested in leasing his family’s land that sits atop the Marcellus Shale in Milanville, PA for drilling. Disturbed by the letter, he embarked on an odyssey to glean as much information as possible about natural gas drilling in the US—with movie camera in hand.

The result is a powerful film that uncovers a trail of secrets, lies and contamination.

That’s what we say…..
But what do critiques have to say about GASLAND?

“GASLAND just might be the best film of the year.” —The Huffington Post

“[I]f a film can ever enact social change, which is rare, the potency of GASLAND suggests that this may be that film.” —Variety

Thanks to all the artists, performers, student groups, and NU and Evanston community members who made the 4th annual ArtsFest such a great success!

We so thoroughly enjoyed getting henna tattoos from SASA, watching the Renegade Dance Architects no once but TWICE, strolling through the aisles of incredible artwork, and celebrating springtime with such a happy, sunny day. Check out North by Northwestern’s article here.

We look forward to seeing you again next year!
