Next Gen

Become a Volunteer

Next Gen is an out-of-school time enrichment program for former Academy students in kindergarten through high school. Offering after school, summer, and remote learning activities and support, Next Gen’s mission is to empower youth to live out their passions, spiritual convictions, and creativity to succeed and change the world around them.

We love to have volunteers work with students on their homework while building relationships Monday - Friday. We also love for volunteers with special skills or passions to lead workshops or classes once a week or every other week. Some examples of this have been dance classes, Girl Scouts, Bible Study, cooking classes and Capoeira. We ask that volunteers commit to coming the same day and time frame each week for planning purposes.

The Academy

Become a Volunteer

Generation One Academy replaces the "traditional classroom" with a collaborative community. Classrooms are small with 14-15 students who are led by a teacher and aide. Our curriculum seamlessly integrates academic and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in order to develop strong character and positive decision making.

We love to have volunteers in the classrooms Monday - Friday to assist the teachers, read to the students, help with projects and more. We can also use administrative help on campus with answering the phone, making copies, data entry, prep for the teachers, etc. We ask that volunteers commit to coming the same day and time frame each week for planning purposes.

Group Projects

Bring Out a Volunteer Team

We host teams for selected projects to improve the campus. Depending on the need, projects may be planned around group size and skill level. Ministry, student groups, and corporate volunteer teams are encouraged to come and help out.
