Next Step to Success serves youth within the city of Norfolk, Virginia.
This program is currently free to participants.
Youth enrolled in Next Step to Success are expected to attend a full day with the understanding that there may be emergent situations that may keep them from doing so on occasion. This is a program built to develop character as well as work ethic, and we pride ourselves on reinforcing the importance of full participation.
Next Step to Success is an innovative blueprint to teach young individuals the power of good character in an effort to increase their likelihood of success. We do this by fostering a growth mindset through courses that guide and enhance problem-solving skills, effective communication, public speaking skills, social and life skills, financial literacy, emotion regulation, strategies for motivation and much more.
The deadline for Summer Session 1 registration is Friday June 18, 2021. Late registrations will be accepted until Wednesday, June 23, 2021.
The deadline for Summer Session 2 registration is Friday, July 23, 2021. Late registrations will be accepted until Wednesday, July 28, 2021.
Next Step to Success is an extension of The Barry Robinson Center. Though we are founded on and rooted in Catholic values, we do not expect or require you or your child to be Catholic or a part of any particular religious denomination.
If your youth gets sick during program hours, a parent/guardian/emergency contact will be contacted to pick up your youth for the day. If they have a fever with temperature registering 100.4 or higher, they will be sent home to ensure safety and Covid precautions. If it is an emergent situation that requires staff calling emergency medical responders, the parent/legal guardian will be contacted immediately following the contact to emergency medical services with details on where your youth is being transported and cared for.
