What’s It Like to Work at NCAC?


We have an important mission and a beautiful campus with comfortable offices, but it’s our 65 great staff members who truly make NCAC a Best Place to Work.

While we often deal with serious topics and the work can be challenging, we foster a supportive culture including taking time to celebrate successes and to show appreciation, being there for each other through ups and downs, and building community through department get togethers, agency-wide staff meetings, appreciation lunches, holiday parties, etc. Throughout the challenges of 2020, we have continued to support each other and to develop new ways to build connections even as most of our interactions have moved to a virtual environment.


We Value Diversity

We serve a diverse client base and value and seek diversity in our staff, interns, Board members and general volunteers. We have an active Diversity and Inclusion Committee that conducts an annual survey of staff to determine how we can continuously improve our services and interactions with our coworkers and our clients. This committee also organizes a quarterly Diversity Schoolhouse training program during which we bring in speakers to educate ourselves about diversity topics and increase our awareness of the local community. Qualified bilingual (English/Spanish) candidates are especially encouraged to apply!


We offer a comprehensive benefits package. Full-time employees are eligible for:

  • Eight hours of annual leave/vacation per month
  • Eight hours of sick leave per month
  • Four hours of personal leave per month to be used to balance work/personal life needs
  • 10 or more holidays
  • Medical, Dental, Vision and Life insurance
  • Retirement savings via a 401(k) plan - available to most part-time and full-time employees - 100% match of the employee's contributions up to 5% of their salary

Looking for internships?

We have limited unpaid intern opportunities. Positions for undergraduate and graduate students in our Intervention and Prevention programs are usually filled at least one or two semesters ahead of time, so please plan ahead. Opportunities for the summer and in administrative functions, such as fundraising, are more flexible. Clinical Interns in Intervention/Therapy are typically second year MSW students and require a two-semester commitment (Fall/Spring).

Bachelor’s level and family advocacy internships are full with earliest openings in summer 2021. Master’s level internships are also full with earliest openings in August 2022 for clinical/therapy.
