NFCC has established relationships with local educational entities, business and civic organizations over the years to offer expanded opportunities in education, culture, and economic development. These partnerships have been as diverse as inviting area children on campus for Children's Theater, hosting seminars on starting a small business, offering free expertise in computer networking, to teaching senior citizens to "compute." We take an active role in local chambers of commerce and development councils. We open our facilities for high school band concerts, seminars on leadership, and art shows. Our faculty and staff devote hundreds of hours in volunteer work throughout the area.
