The NextGen program exceeded my expectations; through presentations from guest speakers, interacting with other youth in the community, and engaging in critical dialogue, I learned how to play an active role in my community and the world beyond it. As a result of this program, I feel better equipped to “play the game”—to better utilize my resources and grow my network. NextGen (and the team that made it happen) influenced how I view real, effective change in Sacramento by giving me tools to connect with others, to hold myself and my city accountable, and to find my voice and what is worth saying.
