Bringing college and career readiness to life through exposure and support.

Who We are

Next Generation Men & Women is an organization built by real teachers dedicated to bringing college and career readiness to life for underserved students across Atlanta through exposure and support.

The Problem

Only 65% of students of color graduate high school in Georgia.

Historically underserved students often struggle as a result of limited opportunity and support outside of the home. Without high aspirations and high expectations, many of our students are destined to fall back into a cycle of instability while our society loses more potential leaders for the future.

Our Solution

Bring the goal of "college & career readiness" to life through exposure and support.

NGM/W takes high school cohorts of 15-25 students through 4-years of programming that includes after school workshops every week along with monthly visits to local companies, colleges and service trips. Each cohort is led by a Teacher Coach from their school and a College Fellow recruited from a local university.

Every student should be prepared to seize the opportunities life has to offer.

Academic Achievement

Challenging myself academically is what will ensure that I develop the skills necessary to create opportunity and stability in my future.

Professional Exposure

My professional brand begins with my personal identity and grows depending on how my work ethic, habits and skills are demonstrated and perceived.

Personal Identity

Understanding where I come from, who I am, and who I want to be will allow me to grow into the best version of myself.

Relationship Building

Relationships are bulit on mutual respect and empathy.
