Because it's our community and we care...
We are an all volunteer, community coalition whose mission is to improve the quality of life for all those living, working or learning in the Town or School District of Niskayuna with an emphasis on substance abuse prevention by youth.
The President’s Volunteer Service Award is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation on behalf of the President of the United States to recognize the best in American spirit and to encourage all Americans to improve their communities through volunteer service and civic participation. The Service Award is given to individuals, families, and groups who have demonstrated outstanding volunteer service and civic participation over the course of a 12-month period. In June of each year, N-CAP hosts an award ceremony to celebrate this commitment to the community.
NCAP runs a number of programs to engage and inform the public and promote community spirit. In all cases, we strive to meet the needs of our community and, especially, our youth, by developing environmental strategies which help to offset the effects of alcohol and drugs on the quality of lives in our community.
Upcoming events sponsored by N-CAP include our 35th annual community day - NISKA-DAY . This year's theme is "we're having a Fiesta" and the festivities take place on May 21st. Visit http://www.niskaday.org for more information.
