Meet With Us
You define success, we help you achieve it!

We are committed to providing a safe space where every 16 to 24 young adult reaches their NXT LEVEL.


Our purpose

The NXT LEVEL Youth Opportunity Center connects 16 to 24 year olds to resources to help meet your personal, educational and career goals. Coaches at the center help you create a plan to get you to the NXT LEVEL.

Support Opportunity Empowerment

The NXT LEVEL Youth Opportunity Center is a safe place where you can meet with a coach who will offer you support, empowerment and access to new opportunities!  We are currently supporting you with virtual and in-person appointments!


Sometimes things happen in life. We are here to help you define success and help you achieve it!  You can expect to have one-on-one coaching sessions as often as you’d like to identify anything going on in  your life that may need some help. Together, you will create a plan and a meeting schedule to make sure you are safe and feel comfortable exploring your NXT LEVEL.


When you are ready to get to the NXT LEVEL, we will help you go back to school if that is the right step for you or find a job related to your interest.  Once you start, we will continue to be there for you to make sure you meet your goals.


We are here to be your cheerleader and guide you in the right direction.  In order to get you to your NXT LEVEL, we will make sure you have all the tools you need to be successful.  Some things we can help with are finding a safe place to sleep, transportation, child care, or just being there for you when you need us.

Sports Activity

“This is a no judgment zone.  When I got out of prison, I got help getting my certification in HVAC when no one was willing to help.  It wasn’t easy. I got tired of being turned away, but that fueled me to start my own business and make good money with support from the team.”

  • “Thank you for believing in me and never giving up on me, even when I didn’t keep my appointment with you. Ms. You would always check on me whether I showed up or not. Thank you Ms. Things are going great now and my mom is so proud of me, she even cried yesterday because we are not homeless anymore.”
  • “I usually don’t really trust people, but she’s cool [coach]. I would pretty much teller her anything.”
  • “I think talking about goals is weird for me cause I just never cared. I was always the bad kid. It’s weird to think about wanting something and not failing. But it’s good.”
  • “Just making sure after I get a job; I can still keep coming and meeting with you, correct?”
  • “The way I see it now either you die, get locked up, or get your sh** together. I’m here cause I ain’t about to die or get locked up, and I need to get it together.”
