Youth and their families face transportation barriers that hinder their opportunities for valuable wraparound services, mentoring, and internships.

One of the key reasons why Our Next Generation (ONG) has been so successful for almost 25 years is because we are one of the only organizations that provides transportation for our scholars. The unique ability to transport our young people is many times the missing link between success and failure.  During the school year we provide transportation from each of our partner schools directly to ONG then to outbound collaborative sites and back to our facility. Afterwards, we provide bus rides for the scholars directly to their front doors. During the summer we are able to transport our students around the city for experiential learning activities and community projects. How amazing is that? Crucial transportation in addition to our program being completely free, yes I said free!

This unique and caring approach provides safety, assurance and continuity of service and bonding between staff and youth.  We proudly serve over 1200 Children & Families each year at Our Next Generation.

Unfortunately, this year we are in need of a new bus in order to continue to provide this critical service to our youth and families. Fortunately, during this season of giving and graciousness we have been offered a challenge grant from a generous partner in the amount of $20,000.  We are inviting 100 caring individuals to donate from $20 – $200 to help us raise our portion of the funds to purchase a new bus for Our Next Generation.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
