About Next Generation Scholars

Next Generation Scholars believes equal access to higher education is the key to making positive change within our community. Our mission is to level the playing field by providing dedicated underserved students with all the advantages available to those of privilege.

Next Generation Scholars combines a rigorous academic program with community building activities and wrap-around social services. All elements of the program are approached through the lens of ethnic studies and social justice. Next Generation Scholars' lectures, events, projects, and personal interactions are all rooted in providing our students with a clear, proud, multi-cultural education. It is of utmost importance that all of our students see themselves as active forces for change within our community.


Assistant Director

June 2018 - August 2018 San Rafael, CA
“I was able to connect back to my community and pay forward the help the non-profit gave to me. I was able to bring the knowledge I learned from Wellesley to my low-income, Latinx community in California. Because I was a teaching intern last summer, they offered me a position as an assistant director to help the main director overlook the program. ”
