Our Next Generation
Enhancing the lives of next generation of children through one-on-one tutoring
In the early 1990s, a visionary group of volunteers formed The Homework Club and committed their personal time to help children from the central city area through one-on-one tutoring. Soon after, Our Next Generation, Inc. was formed as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. The main aim of the organization is to offer tutoring and guidance for children from caring and concerned volunteers. For more than two decades ONG has been providing quality academic support and life skills programs to hundreds of urban children and youth, pre-K through 12th grades.
