Why Give TO THE NEXT GEN USA LEADERSHIP FOUNDATION?
INSPIRATIONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS CREATED THROUGH SOCCER.
NGLA students embrace togetherness on and off the pitch.
Studies suggest that the adolescent years are extremely formative, and athletic involvement is a powerful influence in value and identity development. At Next Gen USA, we believe that a holistic approach to engaging adolescent youth in values-based educational and life skills curricula can and do influence how a child develops character, leadership skills, intellectual curiosity, and a passion for a career in sport.
LEARN BY DOING
These girls do!
This is an exciting time at Next Gen USA. We are delighted to announce the launch of the Next Gen USA Leadership Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization that will now serve as Next Gen USA’s major charitable arm. Through programs like the Next Gen Leadership Academy and Urban Promise, both of which offer children, ages 7-18, innovative academic services and leadership training programming, the Foundation aims to help student-athletes in the Next Gen USA community who face financial hardship and other barriers to entry due to limited family resources and unfavorable socioeconomic conditions that affect their participation in academic and other soccer educational activities.
Please consider a tax-deductible gift to support the Foundation's mission and ongoing efforts to increase participation in values-enhanced, soccer-focused community based programming that inspires, empowers and educates youth participants to reach their potential in the classroom, on the field and in the community.
