OUR “WHOLISTIC” GIVING APPROACH
We believe donations should benefit the whole service team, not just the group at the top that “allocates resources”.  By converting your donation to philanthropy, we make sure:

  • 70% of each donation goes towards the actual project
    — 30% for student stipends as a reward for learning new STEM++ skills
    — 40% for supplies, equipment, service-providers and materials
  • NEXT Steps only keeps 30% of each donation
  • We give any remaining project funds to the host nonprofit organization . . . because everyone needs to keep their lights on
  • 30% Student Stipends
  • 40% Project Funds
  • 30% NEXT Steps

The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Program has finally found a new home to launch our new NEXT Steps Partners In Education University programs. Special thanks to the Cross Assembly of God Church located at 3363 Midway Road in Decatur, GA 30032.

[feature_headline type=”left” level=”h2″ looks_like=”h5″ icon=”dashboard”] Service Goal[/feature_headline]

[columnize id=”” class=”” style=”padding-left:40px;”]NEXT Steps Partners In Education (NSPIE) University is a flexible, online blended-learning and employment solution that integrates digital gaming and apprenticeship experiences to bridge the gap between academic achievement, workforce experience and applied-learning. Our learn-and-earn platform allows youth and young adults ages 6-24+ to  participate in leadership and skill-building activities through individually customized curricula, mentoring and on-the-job training (i.e., internships, apprenticeships and service-learning projects). Our vision is to create a holistic micro-credentialing system that uses service-learning deliverables to validate the current market value of a young person’s capabilities, STEM++ skillsets and contributions to society based on their abilities to enhance profitability, sustainability and community-based engagement opportunities for local small businesses and nonprofit organizations.  

Our goal is to launch NSPIE University (pilot) on September 1, 2017 with 20 students ages 17+.

Similar to the original Atwood Community Gardens & Urban Farm Park, we’ve got a little cleaning up to do. The facility is very nice but needs quite a bit of work to get it functionally sound to facilitate our operation. We are asking for loving hands and hearts to come and provide volunteer services and to partner with us to offer quality programs and services. Activities include:

  • Painting everything
  • Cleaning the carpets
  • Building a stage
  • Repairing original features
  • Installing new or repairing old air conditioning units
  • Grounds work (trees)
  • Painting lines for the parking lot
  • Planting a garden
  • Installing Wi-fi wiring
  • Creating a computer center
  • Creating a print shop
  • Creating a shared kitchen
  • Creating multi-purpose classrooms
  • Installing edible landscaping
