Every child deserves a chance!

At Next Generation Focus (NGF), we believe that academic improvement and success will help keep children in school, out of the juvenile justice system, and away from drugs and alcohol.  Our mission is to equip the next generation of leaders by providing educational and financial resources, as well as mentoring support.  

We reach out to youth in economically challenged families in our community through our SmarterMe® Programs, which:
  • Provide tailored, individualized, and grade-appropriate tutoring that is aligned to school district standards
  • Expose children to new ideas and skills
  • Teach teamwork, leadership, good work ethics, and fair-play
  • Promote self-esteem, self-confidence, and respect for others
  • Provide a safe place to socialize and make new friends.  
  • Cultivate civic responsibilities and develop character through community service projects.

Since 2008, NGF has served more than 2,500 students (see our Timeline).  In the school year of 2016 to 2017, our team of 80+ adult and teen volunteers is serving more than 450 K-8 students in multiple schools in the Forsyth and Gwinnett Counties of Georgia.
