For Club Advisors: Fundraise For Your Club

Next Era is a statewide youth movement funded by The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living. Founded in 2017, Next Era teens across Louisiana are uniting as agents of change to promote healthy, tobacco-free lifestyles.

Each year, Next Era partners with high school clubs/organizations across Louisiana. Learn more below.

How It Works

Next Era Partners receive up to $1,700 for their club/organization. As a Partner, you:

  • Help recruit high school students in your school/organization to attend a Next Era training conducted by our program staff.
  • Earn money for your club/school as Next Era youth complete program milestones. This money can be used for whatever your club/organization/school needs - it’s entirely up to you.

After the training, youth can become Next Era members and work on campaign activities throughout the year. By participating in Next Era, youth will:

  • Develop leadership and activism skills. They may even attend state and national conferences to present their work!
  • Have the opportunity to earn scholarships, awards, and community service hours
  • Be involved in creating real change in their school, community, and state

Next Era covers all costs associated with the Next Era training, events, and projects. Next Era Partner recipients are NOT expected to utilize any portion of their award towards any Next Era program efforts.
