The Tools They Need

The Next Generation Leader program (Nx Gen) is a program designed to prepare girls in grades 5 – 7 to transition into healthy, independent teens. The curriculum focuses on character and leadership development. Topics include healthy relationships, character development, peer pressure, conflict resolution, and civic engagement. The services provided enhance strong interpersonal and life skills to help the girls build better futures, and avert risky behavior.  The girls also engage in community service activities.
