UP Next provides mentorship and employment opportunities to teenagers.  UPNP Project fosters productive relationships between local business people/"Community Champions" and young men & women of character.  

UP Next also collaborates with local tutoring programs, including one based at University of King’s College in Halifax.

As part of its Mentor Program, UP Next tries to identify students who wish to pursue the highest levels of education (including undergraduate- and graduate-level studies) and connect them to professionals who can assist with academic &/or career support.  UP has a number of mentoring relationships underway, and new connections are being made every month.  

If you want to be part of UP Next or know someone who could benefit, please contact Dave Napier @ 902.999.2320. 

It makes good sense to pair up hard-working kids with mentors invested in helping them find opportunities. Its good for youth, and it provides adults with a clearer window into the lives, challenges and potential of some of our city’s finest young citizens.
