NextUp – Youth Leadership Program
Next Up is a leadership development program for young people from the ages of 19 to 32, who are interested in social change and environmental justice. Columbia Institute was one of the proud founding organizations behind this initiative for the first seven years of the program.
"The NextUp program opened a number of important doors for me. The skills I learned through our sessions have come into play in both my personal and professional life, allowing me to create positive, ambitious, and effective environments." -Erin O'Melinn, Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition-
