Next Level Learning opportunities have the potential to be the great equalizer in education. As an organization, we strive to increase funding to provide equitable educational opportunities for all students within safe and secure learning environments. Partnering with the community to enrich student learning, we leverage our most important investment – the educational and personal success of our kids.
We strongly believe the challenges of today can be daunting, there are rich resources to draw from in rethinking what is possible in developing human capacity to engage with these challenges and how we think about the nature of learning.
To meet the challenges of uncertainty, in a manner that supports human resilience, equality, inclusion, health, and well-being, we are challenged to shift how we think about the nature of education. We need to reconsider who learning is for and how it positions learners to deal with a future where little is certain, except for the need to become effective lifelong learners, to respond to the current and future challenges of a complex world. Our efforts, programs, and advocacy help prepare students for a world of intense and unpredictable social and economic change.
Supporting innovative programs and experiences helps students encounter academic success and capitalize on positive momentum. When students have a clear, tangible outcome for their learning and can recognize their successes, engagement comes naturally, and the payoffs are clear:
- Achieve higher graduation rates
- Reach more at-risk students
- Retain students and state funding
- Increased teacher retention
- Deepen community ties/support
- Attain better student engagement with fewer behavior issues
In short, high-quality learning opportunities are for everyone - and the benefits they create are critical to our future economy.
