Mission Statement

Next Generation Scholars? believes equal access to higher education is the key to making positive change within our community. Our mission is to level the playing field by providing dedicated underserved students with all the advantages available to those of privilege.

Description

Next Generation Scholars offers a college preparatory curriculum, psychological services, leadership training and supportive social services. All elements of our programs are approached through the lens of ethnic studies and social justice. Our lectures, events, projects and personal interactions are rooted in a deep respect for our multicultural society and a desire to provide our students with a meaningful education. It is of utmost importance that all our students not only see themselves as active agents of change in the community, but that they also think seriously about what values and causes they are going to enact in their lives.

Next Generation Scholars believes the creation of a college bound culture is what will enable students to successfully navigate their individual paths to higher education. It is not unusual for parents to be in our center taking a workshop on parenting college bound children, while their high school age children take SAT prep classes and their middle school age children engage in a math class. Outside our college access center, Next Generation Scholars works with local schools to provide support to faculty and workshops for parent groups.
