Next Gen USA Leadership Foundation through its programming provides progressive mentoring, college preparation and workforce development programs for middle and high school students. Next Gen USA Leadership Foundation focuses on youth development, workforce development and educational training services for underserved youth. The Foundation aims to empower children and families with the knowledge and resources to successfully complete a higher education, while providing scholarships and support services to as many exceptional middle and high school students as possible.

An important consideration for the Foundation centers around non-profit governance issues, primarily concerning its Board of Directors. The Next Gen USA Leadership Foundation’s Board is comprised of seven general directors and one, non-voting member of the Foundation’s management team. We believe this provides a balance between outside perspective and knowledge of specific business issues impacting our organization. Our management team, led by Tony Williams, features experts in the fields of administration, communications, development, education, evaluation, finance, marketing, program development and risk management.
