Neighbor to Neighbor Community Education (NTNCE) Project
The Neighbor to Neighbor Community Education (NTNCE) Project advocates for a new section in newspapers associated with small and mid-sized towns. The new section (NTNCE section) would be used to highlight and accumulate stories, personal experiences, and other forms of reader contributions which identify helpful people and valuable resources, and reinforce important community goals.
The NTNCE Project is an example of community service work which can be done by local newspapers, which:
a) highlights what is valuable and important in everyday community life
b) encourages positive neighbor to neighbor relations
c) provides records of community life which can be used by future historians
d) helps increase consensus for a local specific, commonly agreed upon definition of “the greater good”.
