The B.I.D. (Brokeness, Identity & Destiny)

WHO IS B.I.D? 

B.I.D. is every broken young male with no direction, inspiration, or idea of what’s possible for them to achieve. 

To help men elevate their thinking in a way that fosters productivity in life skills, relationships, and finances. In addition, help them create personal goals and provide the tools to help them see their goals come to fruition. These skill sets will be carried-out by utilizing one on one sessions, group sessions, and activities. Skills will include completing job applications, interviewing techniques, job dress code, understanding adulthood, understanding women, understanding roles in the community, and entrepreneurship. 

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CREATING B.I.D? 

With the realization of what young men can achieve, it will give them a sense of pride and possibilities which will make them feel better about themselves. 

HOW WILL YOU CONDUCT THE GOALS OF B.I.D? 

We will inspire them, motivate them, help them realize what they are enthusiastic about and pursue it in a productive way. We will help them find employment OR start a business, doing something they love, which is more fulfilling than doing something you don’t. 

WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS OR OUTCOME? 

These young men will become an asset in their homes, in their community, and to society. When young men engage in something they love, it will bring them Peace of Mind and Clarity, which will help them make better life decisions, and productive. 

When young men are being productive it will cause them to have positive ideals, mindsets, and ensure self-efficacy; thereby decreasing the urge to commit crimes. The Program will also focus on properly ushering young men into adulthood which will help shape them to become better sons, big brothers, fathers, and husbands, or leaders in general – this will help decrease broken homes in our community.

Women in Labor (WIL)

Women in Labor is a model for women to receive assistance and direction in ways to maneuver through challenges and obstacles they may face in life.

Women in our area struggle with life experiences that leave them to deal with past hurts, violence, financial challenges, unemployment, health issues and life in general. We want to help these women recognize the DREAMS they have but have not had the opportunity to birth because of these obstacles.

Our goal is to work with these women to promote a theory of change. We believe that being open and honest is critical to success and desired results. With this in mind, we will create a platform for interactive dialogue where each woman pulls from each other’s strengths, struggles and experiences to create motivation with an outcome of restoration, freedom, and relief.

Our program assists women who desire personal and professional guidance to help them move forward. It is a unique model that provides a supportive environment for goal planning, skill building and personal development. Our goal is to cultivate new relationships that foster increased confidence, self-sufficiency and connection to their home and community. These goals will allow the women to continue to move forward independently in life and it is our hope that they can pass this knowledge on to other women in the future.

Seniors In Action

(1) Progressive individuals working together and living their best life through cultural activities, financial literacy, healthy lifestyles, continuous learning, and giving back to their communities!

                …. OR …….

(2) Empowered individuals changing their lives and the lives of those around them through hope, positivity, wisdom, knowledge, love, generosity, and action as they live out their lives each day!

 

Why you think working for Seniors is important?

Seniors are the foundation of families, cities, our communities & America.  They have been the bedrock of  successful businesses and the economy; nurturing and rearing not only their own families, but whole neighborhoods. The fortunate 500 companies, CEO’s and ingenuity that exist today were built from the labor, wisdom, and hard-work of our Seniors.

What you plan to do with them?

I want to honor those to whom honor is due and ensure their latter days are their greatest days.  Providing goods and services, food, workshops, events, tools, strategies, and opportunities to uplift, educate, empower, and pamper them.

The purpose for doing it?

The initiatives and projects implemented will let each one know they are important, valuable and not forgotten!

What value does Seniors bring to society?

Without acknowledging and embracing the wisdom and knowledge of our seniors our society is doomed.  There is a wealth of knowledge, teaching and nurturing beyond books/degrees, etc that these precious jewels embody and must be garnered during each decade to maintain our civility.

Integrative Therapy

Mental health and mental illness (disorder) are increasingly being used as if they mean the same thing, but they do not. Everyone has mental health, just like everyone has health. As the World Health Organization famously says, “There is no health without mental health.” In the course of a lifetime, not all people will experience a mental illness, but everyone will struggle or have a challenge with their mental well-being (i.e., their mental health) just like we all have challenges with our physical well-being from time to time.

When we talk about mental health, we are talking about our mental well-being: Our emotions; our thoughts; and feelings; our ability to solve problems and overcome difficulties; our social connections; and our understanding of the world around us.

A mental disorder is an illness that affects the way people think, feel, behave, or interact with others. There are many different mental illnesses, and they have various symptoms that impact peoples’ lives in different ways.

Therefore, we use a variety of therapy options and a combination of tools that we believe will benefit your unique situation and suit your needs, including:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Virtual Reality Therapy
  • Youth Therapy Room
  • Meditation
  • Yoga Exercises
  • Mediation and Conflict Resolution
  • Spiritual Enrichment

NextGen has partnered with Elevation Enrichment Services, a practice dedicated to counseling individuals and families by providing unbiased therapy, assessment, and consultative services to assist in the treatment of emotional and behavioral symptoms.

As the rippling effects of NextGen’s and Elevation Enrichment’s work touch the wider community, we will partner with others to bring our methodology and experiences beyond the walls of our Center to provide churches, community groups, and other organizations with the information and strategies we learned and used to transform the lives of young people and their families.
