The Now Generation Foundation: Aiming to empower the youth

By Foresee Foundation

With their main focus being youth development, The Now Generation Foundation has taken on the task of empowering the youth of St. Maarten by showcasing their talents, organising youth conventions and taking youth initiatives.

The foundation’s programs aim to foster positive relationships, caring mentalities, and guidance for young people ages five and up. The foundation offers sessions in dance, guidance, cooking, and arts and crafts designed to promote positive development. The group has five board members and about 12 volunteers that mobilize projects that get started. They host a yearly youth convention, “Training to Rein” workshops, a biennial concert, and they participate in community events such as SXM Doet and NPOwer “Connect and Inspire” Conference.

The foundation’s message is that we need each other to make the world a better place. It encourages individuals to reach out and shape lives for better morals and better living. The foundation’s program is geared to strengthening young people in a holistic way and that stimulates them spiritually and intellectually. The foundation, which was started in 2013, prides itself on providing opportunities for positive development.

How does your organization contribute to a better St. Maarten for all?

The Now Generation Foundation is committed to contributing to a better St. Maarten by nurturing positive relationships and fostering caring mentalities among the youth. The organization recognizes that positive relationships and caring attitudes are critical to promoting a healthy and productive society. By encouraging young people to foster positive relationships with their peers, family members, and community members, the foundation aims to cultivate a culture of respect, empathy, and understanding. In addition, the foundation provides guidance to young people, helping them to navigate the challenges of growing up in today’s society.

By providing support and mentorship, the organization empowers young people to make positive choices and become responsible, productive members of society. This guidance can take many forms, such as educational workshops, counselling services, or one-on-one mentorship. The foundation also fosters care among young people by encouraging them to give back to their communities. Through volunteerism and community service, young people can develop a sense of responsibility and empathy towards others, and contribute to making St. Maarten a better place for all. Overall, the Now Generation Foundation’s focus on nurturing positive relationships, providing guidance, and fostering care among the youth is a vital contribution to building a healthier, happier, and more prosperous St. Maarten for all.

Give examples of activities you usually host or have hosted to achieve your organization’s goals?

We host a yearly youth convention aimed at bringing youth together to showcase talents. We have “Training to Rein” workshops. Every two years we organise a concert. Our Global Youth Summit will now be split into two international conventions to showcase talent – singing, dancing and skits. For SXM Doet, we hosted a free meal day, and we participated in NPOwer “Connect and Inspire” Conference.

What message would you like to send out to the community to support your group’s goals?

Always remember that there is someone out there who needs help – we need each other to make the world go around. Reach out, touch and shape a life for better morals and better living.

How can someone sign up to volunteer or support your organization?

We always need volunteers. We are on and we are open to involving people who want to make a positive impact on our world.
