Project Next Generation (PNG)

PNG is an initiative started by Illinois Secretary of State, Jesse White. The grant program is designed to mentor pre-teens, empower them with life skills, and introduce students to new technology. Funding for the project was awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of the Secretary of State, Jesse White, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
