The NXT Level Youth Opportunity Center, managed by the City's Department of Human Services in coordination with Goodwill and Communities in Schools, assists young adults (16-24) disengaged youth with the steps necessary to go back to school or find a job related to their interest

NXT Level is a City of San Antonio program partnered with Communities in Schools (CIS) and Goodwill Industries. The program serves young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 who are disconnected from education, work, and major societal support systems.

We are committed to providing a safe space where every 16 to 24 year old achieves their personal, educational, and/or career goals.

We connect each participant with a life and education/career coach. Coaches offer on-going case management, counseling, life skills, and referrals to community partners with demonstrated success.

Anyone between the ages of 16-24 who resides in San Antonio qualifies for the services and can either schedule an appointment or walk in to meet with a NXT Level coach.

Foster children are moved around a lot. From placement to placement.

Learning important life skills often gets lost in the shuffle.

Our Life-Skills and Engagement Program came from recognizing that although THRU Project provides basic support such as bus passes, resource referrals, phones and job/education related assistance, our young adults oftentimes lack the life skills and positive networks necessary to break negative cycles.

THRU Project has developed a two-pronged approach that engages both youth and their volunteer mentors. Our goal is to host four workshop/events quarterly that focus on a particular skill. Topics will be chosen by the youth in our program; and may include cooking and nutrition, human trafficking, networking, communication, higher learning, and interview skills. The second part of each session will engage participants and volunteer mentors in team-building activities that are fun and create community.

Our goal for the Life Skills Program is that our youth begin to see themselves as a part of something bigger than themselves and know they are among people who understand their particular needs and situations.
