Program Description

NLC3's mission is to provide a support system for local and out of state NLC students, by bridging the gap between Christ, college and community. We serve as a support group for New Life Covenant, assisting students by:

- Helping make the transition from high school to college by providing them with the necessary tools/resources

- Offer financial assistance through our annual scholarship program.

- Expose our high school students to college life, by taking them on campus tours

- Assisting students with finding internships and full-time opportunities

- Helping students to become 'well- rounded,' by teaching them the importance of giving back through volunteer service.

- Help students to remain focused on completing their education, while still keeping Christ first.

It is our desire that as the NLC3 begins to grow so that we will be able to provide additional resources that will assist you during your journey in college. NLC3 is designed to meet the needs of every student: whether you are interested in trade school or a single mom looking to go back to school after 20 years. College is not an easy task, and we want to make the experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible by providing financial resources, words of encouragement, workshops, job opportunities and so much more.
