At The Next Street, heroes mean a lot to us. They work among us, sit in our classrooms, or have children that attend. Our heroes have fought for our freedom, protected our streets and homes, and some still put their life in harm's way to this day. Whether it be military, or public service. We recognize all of these brave men and women and what they have done and still do for us. That is why The Next Street is proud to give as much support as we can to these individuals. For one, we like to hire heroes. Their lead from the front mentality and dedication to the job is something we like all of the employees at The Next Street to have and our heroic employees provide a good example of how to be to everyone. We love having them on our team. On the other side, we take pride in doing our part in recognizing these individuals when they plan on attending our classrooms or enrolling a child in one of our classes. We offer discounts to our heroes and their families upon enrollment as recognition for a job well done. We would love to do more. So, if you, or someone you know is a hero who has served in the Armed Forces, Police, or Fire. We would like to recognize that person and encourage others to do the same. Reach out to us on social media, by phone, or email with a photo of your hero and brief description. We would love to share it to our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter page!
Every town has its traffic trouble spots. On this episode of Traffic Troubles, The Next Street visited Officer Soccio with the New London Police Department. We talked about what some of the department's major concerns were when it came to traffic within New London and went to visit them. One thing to keep in mind about New London, which is something that happens to a lot of other smaller cities, is that the roads were built a long time ago. Meaning, when built, the growth of the city was not a major concern, so being able to handle so much traffic was not expected. Officer Soccio went over why these areas were concerning and how, and when, to avoid trouble in these areas.

Wolcott, Connecticut is home to one of our many Next Street locations. It's a small quiet little town located in the Northern part of New Haven county. Although small, there is a lot to do and see. It's also a great place to learn how to drive a car.
