Next Generation Services Thrives

Next Generation Services (NGS) located in Glenview, opened in September 2014 and has been thriving ever since. 

Created as an alternative to traditional developmental training programs, NGS offers individuals the chance to explore their local community.  The typical weekly schedule at NGS includes a variety of community-based volunteering, educational, fitness and recreational opportunities.  

This year, NGS participants connected to nature at Camp Pine Woods, went on a haunted hayride at Didier Farm, took in pottery classes at Thrown Elements Pottery and tried their hand at meditation during a visit to the Bahai’ Temple.  NGS serves a total of 21 individuals. 

Preparations are underway to launch a second NGS program by the summer of 2016.
