OVERVIEW

We Are the Next provides social justice and youth development programs for teens and young adults in the greater Long Beach region. Our programs take place on-location in schools, after school centers, and other educational environments. Our staff and Youth Advisory Council composed of local students design our programs and test-pilot them to ensure we're meeting the needs of the students we service. 

We offer programs in the cities of Long Beach, Wilmington, Carson, Compton, Lakewood, Bellflower, Hawaiian Gardens, and Signal Hill.
