Who We are

Next Generation Men & Women is an organization built by real teachers dedicated to bringing college and career readiness to life for underserved students across Atlanta through exposure and support.

The Problem

Only 65% of students of color graduate high school in Georgia.

Historically underserved students often struggle as a result of limited opportunity and support outside of the home. Without high aspirations and high expectations, many of our students are destined to fall back into a cycle of instability while our society loses more potential leaders for the future.

Our Solution

Every student aspires to be what they can see and wishes to become the people they look up to.

Growing up, we all need more support and opportunity than what our families and teachers can provide alone. It takes a village to raise a child – our model expands that village to provide greater opportunity and support for those who need it most.

NGM takes high school cohorts of up to 30 students in Atlanta through a year-long exposure program and curriculum that focuses on empowering them to develop a long-term vision of their future, their career, and their community responsibility.

Academic Achievement

Challenging myself academically is what will ensure that I develop the skills necessary to create opportunity and stability in my future.

Professional Exposure

My professional brand begins with my personal identity and grows depending on how my work ethic, habits and skills are demonstrated and perceived.

Personal Identity

Understanding where I come from, who I am, and who I want to be will allow me to grow into the best version of myself.

Relationship Building

Relationships are bulit on mutual respect and empathy.

We can all play a role in building a village
