NextGen, funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, is designed to help a diverse group of students with demonstrated leadership potential complete their requirements for certification in nonprofit management and leadership and encourage the recruitment and retention of skilled and diverse next generation nonprofit leaders.
