At Next, we help young adults ages 16-24 get set for success by providing the holistic support and training they need to create the future they want.

We provide a safe space where young adults can connect and socialize, get something to eat or access health services, and find help with their education and career.

Young adults want to succeed in their careers and their lives. Yet, many young people may not have a clear pathway to work, training or post-secondary education, even if they have their high school diploma.

That’s why Next offers a place where they can take charge, walk up to opportunity’s door—and kick it wide open.

Next was founded by Workforce Southwest Washington in collaboration with community partners and businesses.
