NextUp RVA is a nonprofit organization powered by a network of providers and leaders with a common commitment to ensuring all RVA youth have access to quality learning opportunities beyond the classroom.


Our System Approach

NextUp coordinates efforts and resources into a cohesive system so that schools, communities and program providers can offer high-quality activities that benefit as many young people as possible while youth and families experience fewer barriers to accessing programs. RVA youth have access to quality out-of-school time programs and learning enrichments in their community and at partnering RPS middle schools. Learn more about NextUp and our excellent network of providers.


More Access for Families

Finding programs for young people afterschool, on weekends and during the summer can be hard for families. NextUp, in partnership with the City of Richmond, wants families to be informed about OST offerings. 



When youth participate in high-quality OST programs they benefit academically, physically, emotionally and socially. Through NextUp’s system youth take part in engaging hands-on learning experiences that are structured and safe, and participate in activities around sports and health, STEM, arts and humanities, leadership and mentoring. All programs are provided by a network of NextUp-approved program providers. Check out our youth outcomes.
