NexxtOne Academy (N1A)
N1A works to develop Black & Latina/o youth through science, technology, engineering, arts, athletics & math (STEAAM) programming.
We believe that helping to build these skills in young people will help them become change agents who will transform their communities. The values that guide our programming include:
• Equity – All youth to have the right to equitable education in science, technology, engineering, arts, athletics and math.
• Opportunity – All youth deserve the opportunity to achieve their boldest dreams.
• Access – Youth learn in different ways, and access to a variety of educational experiences is essential.
• Integrity – We operate the organization with integrity in our programs and service delivery.
NexxtOne Academy works in partnership with D.C. public and charter schools to provide programs to middle and high school students, focusing on the intersectionality of STEM, athletics, and the arts. Through our offerings, we aim to demonstrate to young people the necessity of these disciplines and how they are integrated into all aspects of their everyday lives and potential careers.
