Supporting Youth

Our mission is to support youth in becoming effective and compassionate leaders. We provide Nonviolent Communication programs that offer leadership and collaboration skills for resolving conflict and bringing awareness and care for our shared universal needs. We work with youth and those who guide our youth at school, in organizations and at home.

NVC Next Gen

NVC is a way of relating to ourselves and others, in the present moment, free of past reactions and thoughts of the future. It is a communication based on ‘being present’ in each moment and creating a quality of connection that gets everyone’s needs met through compassionate giving and receiving. 

By learning to identify your needs and express them free of blame, as well as understanding and being present to the needs of others, you can stay connected to your authentic truth and create a life that it is more fulfilling.

Our Impact

We teach NVC in so many ways. We’re able to incorporate everyone’s level of skill into any length training, so we can work with those who have no knowledge of NVC, as well as those with NVC or other empathy training experience. We would savor the opportunity to share with you how NVCnextgen can help your organization.

Please email us or call us if you want us to conduct a seminar, or if you simply want to know more about how we can help your organization develop more social and emotional learning skills.
