Factors of Youth Violence


Our mission is to provide our participants with technical support services and community-building  ideas that will improve their daily lives and uplift their living standards.  We are committed to partnering with schools, agencies, and community organizations to open the opportunity to live safe and healthy lifestyles.

We believe the systems that we introduce to communities we engage with offer multiple possibilities and viable solutions in the current world climate that will result in building successful 21st century communities.


National Community Partnership is an Atlanta based non-profit organization that combines Community Transformation Solutions, Transitional Learning Systems, Outreach Strategies and Training.  We work with the four pillars of the community - the Church, the Family, the School, and the Government to develop systems, implement short and long term projects and provide information, training and technical services to support these projects.


NCP is a nationally-recognized public health, market research and social-marketing agency that specializes in developing cost-effective, cutting-edge and culturally relevant messages for hard-to-reach, at-risk and underserved audiences.  NCP is headquartered in Atlanta, with satellite projects in Detroit, Harrisburg and Philadelphia.  NCP has its origins 1997, when Senior Managing Director Nathan Waters established the business while he served as the Program Manager for the Fulton County Youth Violence Prevention Initiative.  Waters reflected on how hip-hop urban youth were consistently left out of mainstream intervention messages dealing with social, health, education and economic issues.

NCP has produced and implemented a wide array of results-oriented social-marketing projects for hard-to-vulnerable, at-risk audiences, in both urban and rural settings.

NCP's partners list spans more than 30 public and private sector partners nationwide, including:  federal, state and city governments;  colleges and universities;  large and small non profits;  foundations;  hospitals/health systems; corporations and entertainment studios.

NCP creates new and innovative solutions that positively impact the challenging problems that plague urban and other underserved communities.
