"I want to be more open to others.  I want to accept others for who they are.  I want to change my personal ways, so I will be more accepting."

Spring 2010
 Jody Clayton Joins the NCCJ Team
NCCJ is excited to announce the addition of Jody Clayton to the program team. Jody joins NCCJ with experience in marketing, education, human relations and a desire to promote the task of NCCJ - to build a community free of bias, bigotry and racism. 

Jody earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from UNC Greensboro. Jody's panache for public speaking led to UNCG's University Ambassador program, a service organization that would come to define his character. He also found a passion for education and human rights.


Upon graduation in 1999, Jody found a work-family with Replacements, Ltd. - a strong, giving and caring partner in the Piedmont-Triad community. During his tenure as the Online Marketing Coordinator at Replacements, co-chaired a United Way campaign fundraiser, and worked very closely with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).


Jody moved on to UNC Charlotte to earn his Master of Arts in Counseling. He has the distinct honor of being a Past-President of Mu Tau Beta; a chapter of Chi Sigma Iota, UNC Charlotte's counseling program's honor society. In May of 2007, Jody earned his M.A. in Community Counseling. Jody resides in Greensboro, and is looking forward to making a true difference in the lives of those touched by NCCJ. 

21st Annual Youth Leadership Conference
Volunteers at Opening Breakfast
Volunteers at Breakfast

The Youth Leadership Conference, sponsored by Sodexo, was held on March 12 in the student union on the campus of North Carolina A & T State University. This annual event drew nearly 300 high school students, dedicated to exploring ideas and developing skills to become leaders and agents of change.  The Youth Leadership Conference was led by more than 40 Youth Ambassadors and alums of ANYTOWN.   

Greensboro Mayor Bill Knight and Guilford County Commissioner Bruce Davis attended the conference.  Commissioner Davis shared his impressions.  "I thought the program was exciting and high energy.  It was great to see the kids interacting with each other and having a great time.  This is an important event and we need to keep it going."

NCCJ is grateful to Sodexo, NC A&T, and the volunteers that gave their time in the days leading up to the conference and again on the 12th.
