Since our doors opened in 2014, we have partnered with non-profits to make a powerful impact in our local communities. Our Vision and Impact Program (VIP) curriculum includes a large-scale community service component where participants create a massive month-long project for a non-profit of their choosing. Teammates are encouraged to envision the unimaginable, create the impossible, and deliver the unobtainable. Using the skills from our trainings and support from our Next Level Trainings personal coaches, we consistently deliver on our declarations.
HOW IT WORKS:
Roughly 40-60 team members in the current VIP leadership class execute the entire project within 30 days.
Teammates on average work to raise $100,000-$200,000, collect hundreds to thousands of tangible goods, create improvement projects to upgrade offices and/or facilities, and execute a minimum of two events.
Through our non-profit partnerships, 100% of donations go directly into the non-profit's bank account in real time for immediate use and impact.
At the core of our mission we believe giving is living. We've been able to source and fundraise large sums of money and give it to charity.
Together, and with the support of local sponsors, we've donated needed items to those most vulnerable in our communities.
VIP classes have directly impacted thousands of people through their volunteer time in support of their local communities
We've held local and national events around social and economic issues, raising the profile of important causes.
It was a surprise when Next Level Trainings contacted us in late October and told us their plans. When the team over-delivered on their promise and in such a short period of time, a simple 'thank you' seemed inadequate. We are truly in awe of these leaders and Next Level Trainings.

I can speak for all of us at Maryhaven: we are eternally thankful to the Next Level Trainings team for their enthusiasm, passion, and tenacity during the past few weeks. Their fundraising efforts and dedication to improve the facility at Maryhaven's adolescent center was breathtaking. This project will have a lasting impact on the teens in this community and their legacy will last for years to come.

We weren’t aware of this program. They just said: ‘We want to support you — and get rid of any limited thinking. Open your mind and your vision; what’s the most wonderful thing that could happen to this organization?’ Less than two months later I was shaking my head in happy disbelief over the results. Such a bounty doesn’t typically rain down on nonprofit agencies such as Kaleidoscope. In fact, their efforts doubled the previous largest contribution.

The efforts that students in Next Level Trainings are providing is a true blessing that many non-profits don’t get to experience. Knowing we have this windfall of funds is making a truly massive and transformational impact on our organization.
