NCMC in the community
One of the key objectives of the North Coast Men’s Chorus is to expand our outreach to the youth of Cuyahoga County. The experiences of many of our members and audience in dealing with discrimination and bullying in their own lives continues to motivate our organization to work towards a more accepting environment for all youth, especially in the face of so much recent news about bullying and youth suicides.
During the three past years, we have reached out financially and artistically to various organizations involved in youth programming, education, and support. These organizations include the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, Providence House, Bellefaire , JCBGLSEN, Western Reserve Academy, The Aids Task Force of Cleveland and P-Flag Cleveland. The North Coast Men’s Chorus believes it is important to support the needs of children and young adults in Greater Cleveland regardless of their financial means, providing financial assistance within our ability to give and in the case of LGBTyouth, provide emotional support.
