Who We Are

Our Next Generation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, community-based organization that provides academic support and enrichment programs for students, kindergarten through high school, in central Milwaukee.

Our programs are designed to address a holistic view of the needs of our community’s children and young adults. This means that in addition to providing focused academic support, we seek to:

  • Create a nurturing environment where children feel welcomed, safe, and valued.
  • Build a collaborative network of parents, families, teachers, volunteers and staff to support each student’s needs.
  • Foster meaningful and sustained one-on-one relationships between students and their volunteer mentors.
  • Expand students’ horizons by exposing them to a variety of enriching environments and potential future careers.
  • Invest students in protecting, improving, and taking pride in their neighborhood and local community.
