We designed our signature programs to engage young audiences with the city that surrounds them. Between 2014 and 2019, we provided our programs on-site to youth-serving agencies, after school programs, educational institutions, city governments, and community organizations. At the close of the 2019 school year, our programs will begin to be hosted by staff at these locations. Stay tuned for a list of locations where you can find and participate in a program designed by We Are the Next.
