The support that these young men receive from the program has an immediate impact on their development as student-athletes and a longterm impact on them as people. Next One Up provides members of the program with everyday things, like proper footwear and equipment, to opening doors for them to reach the next level in academics such as SAT prep courses, tutoring and college visits.
