Who We Are

 

The Navajo School Clothing Program (NSCP) boasts its existence since 1954 and is currently under the Navajo Division of Social Services. The NSCP is a small program whom serves and assists students and families throughout the Navajo Nation. The NSCP Encourages Students, and Parents to support the program throughout the designated Council Delegates and Chapter Officials regarding the Program.

The NSCP has Provided school children with clothing on an annual basis. Many children have received clothing for many years and can remember the delight in receiving new clothes. Today is the same, the children are still extremely excited about their clothes. There are no income eligibility requirements to obtain school clothing.

The NSCP serves Navajo Children whom are enrolled at any of the Five Agencies throughout the Navajo Nation and must be attending any participating School District on the Navajo Reservation.

The NSCP also serves Navajo School children whom are residing off the Reservation who are enrolled with a participating School.

The NSCP works collaboratively with school entities to ensure student clothing orders are completed and submitted timely so that each student receives their school clothing package as soon as possible after the new school year begins.

The NSCP works diligently with delegated School Representative to ensure that the school clothing packages are received by the students.

The NSCP continues to seek the most up to date clothing styles, fashions , textures, colors, and sizes for the students.
