Overview

The Next Generation Center (NGC) is a one-stop center designed to support young people, ages 14-24, as they prepare for and transition to adulthood and independence.

The mission of NGC is to help high-risk young people change the trajectories of their lives through transformational relationships, stage-based employment programming and strong partnerships with other youth-serving institutions (See: Program Partners such as the Family Court, OCFS, ACS, Juvenile Rights Division of the Legal Aid Society, Lawyers for Children, Bronx Defenders, Covenant House, and other foster care agencies.)

NGC is a community-based center in the Morrisania section of the Bronx (Community District 3) with a service delivery and program approach designed to support the needs of youth in foster care and those who have aged out of foster care as well as those involved in the Juvenile Justice System (See: LINC Program).

The center’s program strategy, case management approach and organizational culture are informed and shaped by our core values are Safety, Care, Connection, Leadership and Growth.

We offer job readiness training and subsidized internships, educational guidance and advocacy, legal counseling, housing assistance, and life skills, creative and visual arts, multimedia, fitness and recreational programming.

Members of the NGC also have access to medical and dental services at the nearby Children’s Aid Society Bronx Family Center.
