Next Generation Charity Profile
Next Generation empowers young people in Marin to learn about pressing environmental and social issues, develop leadership skills, and take grassroots action for peace and sustainability.
Next Generation believes young people have the power to understand and change the world. We engage youth and adults through community events, school-based activities, outdoor experiences, leadership development, and grassroots campaigns. Our activities encompass our core values of sustainability, peace, and social justice while promoting inspiration, hope, community, youth leadership, local action, and practical solutions.
Since our founding in 2002, Next Generation has engaged thousands of youth and adults through activities at dozens of schools, youth programs, and our community-based events.
Our main focus is our ground-breaking Green Schools Program, a comprehensive initiative empowering young people in Marin to learn more about environmental issues and sustainable solutions, gain leadership skills, and take action for our environment.
