Empowering Young Adults

Our NextGen program is designed to help young adult career-seekers remove the obstacles to employment through a variety of services, including (but not limited to) career advising, mentoring, and leadership development. Our NextGen young adults are ages 16 to 24 and live within Mecklenburg County. Eligible young adults also identify with one or more of the following:

  • Are in or out of school
  • Have difficulty with math and reading
  • Need a high school diploma or GED
  • Are juggling the responsibility of a child or finding a stable place to live
  • Had some legal missteps
  • Want to attend college or earn a credential


Whether you’ve stopped working due to personal issues, or never even had a chance to start your dream career, our team will provide you with the tools, training and support you need to join the region’s workforce, and chart a fulfilling career.

NextGen provides these young adults with specific services designed to prepare them for the workforce, and to find sustained employment success.
