What does NxTG mean to our youth?

“I can see that NxtG has changed my life for the better.  It has pointed me onto the right path.  NxtG has always been here for me and I always want to be here for it as long as I possibly can.”
“I get the help I need involving personal stuff and stuff for college.”
“It is a way of teaching me the values of school, and personal issues that I can overcome.”
“It is a way to connect with people. Fun learning time. Yay!”
“It helps me talk about problems and have someone to listen to me.”
“Guidance…because you help us out a lot and I come here just to calm down and talk about things.”
“Next Gen helps me with my future.”
