What does We Are the Next do?

Our Programs

We Are the Next provides social justice and civic engagement programs for teens and young adults in the greater Long Beach region. Through our programs, we encourage the next generation to build a relationship with their city. We explore the city as a municipality, the city's built and natural environment, and the cultures and communities in the city. Through signature programs like CITY101, residents learn how to advocate for their community.

Our Service Area

We Are the Next serves the cities of Long Beach, Wilmington, Harbor City, Carson, Compton, Lakewood, Paramount, Bellflower, Hawaiian Gardens, and Signal Hill.
