Neighborhood Outreach Connection
About the organization
Committed to eliminating poverty’s root causes, Neighborhood Outreach Connection (NOC) harnesses the energy of families, schools, libraries, health providers, and other non-profits to break the pattern of generational poverty, one neighborhood at a time.
NOC’s design targets poverty’s root causes through a multi-faceted approach that combines educational programs, workforce development, and health screenings – all built on a strong presence within the neighborhood. NOC’s seven learning centers operate within low-income neighborhoods in Beaufort County. The centers serve the residents of the neighborhoods in which they are located, allowing the program to fully immerse itself within the community. Furthermore, the centers are managed by trained Program Managers with support from a Neighborhood Liaison, and NOC’s field staff of part-time teachers and volunteers, as well as parents.
The Neighborhood Liaison plays an important role in the field to assist the Program Manager with outreach and communication with members of the community, especially children and parents, and assist the Program Manager with coordination and implementation of NOC's special events that take place within the neighborhood.
The main responsibility of the Neighborhood Liaison is to build relationships with the neighborhood community. The Neighborhood Liaison communicates with all members of the community to keep everyone informed and up to date on all of NOC's programs. The Neighborhood Liaison is responsible for encouraging parent involvement with NOC in any way possible and ensuring that parents are actively involved in their children's education. They are also responsible for finding out the needs of the community and working with the Program Manager to implement programs to meet those needs.
