A New Kind of Adventure


The NextGen Academy was created to inspire and develop a new generation of leaders - leaders that could not only affect progressive change throughout their respective communities, but who also embodied the principles of compassion, altruism, and love. Through a rigorous training curriculum and leading autonomous projects, our participants develop the skills and capabilities to design, develop and implement their own unique contributions to the betterment of society. Our unique training empowers youth to not only have a vision, but also guides them through working with a team to make that vision happen, all while having fun doing it.

Everything we do has two guiding principles. The first is the impact to the communities we serve. NGA serves both domestically and abroad by creating a sustainable difference through education programs, community projects and partnerships with local businesses. 

The second is the impact to our participants. Can you imagine spending months planning, creating, and executing your own service project in Rwanda? Or organizing a school-wide anti-bullying campaign for 300+ students? At 19? As part of the full-year program, participants are trained in all the required skills to fully design, fund, and implement their own service projects and educational programs. Teams are then sent across the globe to implement the very projects they designed. Impassioned with a desire to serve others, many of our alumni continue beyond the program to create sustainable impact in communities and pursue improvements in health, social empowerment and education.

Our Mission Statement

To challenge and empower the next generation to create lives of authenticity, abundance, and altruism

Our Code

Play Full Out. Give 100%
Be Honest - with Yourself and Others
Give AND Receive
Celebrate the Victories
Have an Open Heart and Mind

ISP Blogs 2016

Our first years have started blogs about getting ready for their trips to Africa!

Africa Blogs #1: Malawi

Greetings everyone!

The team has been so busy since we last wrote! On Sunday we were invited to join church service at the community hall which was built last year. We were so warmly welcomed by the Unificationists of Malawi, who sang us songs in their native languages and allowed the locals to share about their gratitude towards having NGA back in Malawi. In turn, the three of us expressed our appreciation and gratitude towards their warm hearts and hospitality. We sang them a very well known song on NGA, One Day, which talks about a vision of total peace on Earth and uniting people in the world as one. They knew the words better than we did! Past years of NGA teams taught them the song. It was a beautiful moment, to sing together as one. It felt like it was meant to be, united simply by the fact we are all human, we are all together and gathered in peace and love...

Africa Blogs #1: Namibia

Aside from doing the many service projects and presentations we have planned we are really excited to experience what makes Namibia, Namibia. In our free time we have been walking down the city streets, going to all the good local places to eat that our guides know about. We had our first interaction with the Himba tribe. They are known for their style of dress and how they cover themselves with red clay to keep cool in the sun. We bought hand made bracelets they were selling and took pictures with them.

One thing I would like to mention...
