Our Story

Founded by local teen Addison Moore on January 20th 2021, Up | Next was created to be Connecticut's first ever fully student-founded and run organization which focuses on teaching students the principles of entrepreneurialism with a commitment to social activism.

Since its founding, Up | Next has grown a team of over 45 members, put on five major fundraising projects, attracted an upwards of 1.14k attendees, and raised roughly $9,000 to help aid in our fight against food insecurity in Fairfield county.

With major projects and new locations on the horizon we’re so excited to show the world who’s Up | Next!
