Next Up Foundation is NOT only about skateboarding. We are about to create LEADERS in our communities.
Next Up Foundation launched its Evidence Based Leadership program in March and will conclude on June 11 at Sierra Middle School. In partnership with Ambassadors of Compassion, Next Up Foundation offers a 12-week, mentor-lead, interactive experience that brings together the wisdom and expertise of leaders and influencers to help equip our youth with resiliency, hope, and the personal leadership skills to navigate and succeed in life’s inevitable challenges. A typical session involves 5-10 short minute inspirational videos, group discussion on 4 main principles: Labor, Influence, Forgiveness, and Experiences (LIFE), and work in their personal leadership workbooks. In addition, our youth participate in a community service project and a personal service project where the identify community needs and create an action plan to contribute in spirit of service.
