Welcome to NextStep


Next Step’s year-round programs provide in-person support, education and resources for young people coping with chronic life-threatening diseases during their transition to adulthood. Relationships are forged, communities built, and minds opened to new possibilities for overcoming obstacles, surviving and thriving.

We provide free programming focused on community, music therapy and education that help our youth develop effective life skills, including health management, youth leadership and job-readiness skills.

Come visit us at our new home, Next Step Central, at 99 Bishop Allen Drive in Cambridge, MA.
