NCBI Monterey County (NCBI MC) was founded in December 1993 as a “non-profit, leadership training organization dedicated to ending discrimination, intolerance, and inter-group tension.” As a community chapter of NCBI International, we are a local organization with an international network.
Over the years, we have reached over 20,000 Monterey County residents in hundreds of schools, businesses, government and non-profit agencies through workshops, consultations and programs, and by promoting dialogue and coalition building to address controversial issues at the root of conflict in our communities.
“NCBI Creates Communities in which Everyone Wants to Belong” is a very apropos tagline originally created by one of NCBI International’s Senior Leaders, Robert Dungey. An African-American man who is also the leader of NCBI Canada and the NCBI Campus Affiliate Program. Thanks Robert!
