Next Gen provides young people with many opportunities for community service, youth leadership, and friendship.
Through activities like "Poverty Simulation" members learn about poverty. In order to end poverty, you must first understand it.
Necessities for Neighbors is a program developed and run by Next Gen to provide neighbors in need with basic necessities.
Welcome to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Rhode Island's youth and young adult group - Next Gen!
Free Hearts. Big Dreams. Hard Work.
We are a group of youth and young adults from all types of backgrounds with one common goal: to help people. As young people, we work to understand the issues that the poor, marginalized and alienated are facing. When we do this, we are able to find ways in which we can make a difference for those in need.
Next Gen members have the biggest dreams. Our youth have unique gifts that they bring to our group, and to the mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. We believe the best and most rewarding types of service come when those involved incorporate their talents, interests and long-term aspirations.
We believe hard work is a major key to success. The basis behind any successful attempt at making a difference is dedicated people who are eager and ready to work hard. We believe in the power of change, and as young people, we are committed to working hard in order to achieve our goals in helping others.
