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.
The Junior Prom Information Night (April 7 at 7:00 in the Little Theater) is presented in partnership with the high school PTO to answer parent questions and concerns about this important event in the lives of their teens.
NCAP has long worked with community partners to create programs and organize events that educate about healthy choices and provide safe and healthy activities. Educational forums, NISKA-DAY, NISKA-GAME and Red Ribbon Week are just some of the events NCAP sponsors.
N-CAP is an all volunteer community coalition. There are many ways to contribute your time and your talents, from web site maintenance to event organization to financial management and more!
