About NEXT: The NEXT 60 Years
In honor of Auberle’s 60th anniversary, the agency launched NEXT as a group of emerging leaders interested in the mission of helping at-risk children and families. NEXT members learn about the challenges facing young people and families in our region, as well as the non-profit sector. They gain networking opportunities, leadership skills and exposure to board governance. Members have the opportunity to create tangible change through projects that interest them.
NEXT members work closely with the Auberle Board of Directors, CEO and staff to support the mission of Auberle through skills-based volunteering, recruitment of other NEXT members, fundraising, professional expertise and community outreach. They are one of only a few groups of their kind in the region.
