Welcome to the new NBCC Web site. We designed it with the needs of both counselors and the general public in mind. Our goal was to make this site logical and user-friendly without losing any of the helpful content in our previous site. Soon, CCE, NBCC International and the NBCC Foundation also will have redesigned sites with formats that are similar to this one, but customized for their unique purposes. If you have any comments, please send them to nbcc@nbcc.org. We hope you find this new site helpful, interesting and attractive.
