Press Release: KW Next Gen Announcement

KW Kids Can Announces Rebranding Initiative: KW Next Gen.


KW Kids Can Unveils Exciting Rebranding Initiative, now KW Next Gen: “A Bold New Chapter in Our Journey”

[AUSTIN, February 21, 2024] – KW Kids Can, a nonprofit leader in educational opportunities for young adults, is thrilled to announce an exciting rebrand initiative that marks a significant milestone in the company’s evolution. The comprehensive transformation encompasses renaming as KW NEXT GEN and expanding program offerings to the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs under 30.

About the Rebrand

Rebranding efforts at KW Next Gen reflect a strategic approach to meeting young adults where they are and staying current with the ever-evolving needs of the next generation of young professionals and entrepreneurs. The new name will better reflect the people KW Next Gen serves, and will better communicate their mission of empowering young adults to unlock their greatest potential through self-development events, coaching and scholarships.

What’s New

Key elements of the rebranding initiative include:

  • Changing our name from KW Kids Can to KW Next Gen
  • Moving our web presence to
  • An exciting new logo and brand
  • Events, coaching, and scholarships are now open to anyone under 30
  • Our signature event, QL Summit with Gary Keller, is now open to aspiring leaders under 30

“Our new name and new brand reflect who we really are and who we work with. We’re here to provide the next generation with the tools they need to live a big bold life of purpose,” says Brandi Lauve, Executive Director. “It’s thrilling to have a name and a brand that celebrates the programs we offer.”

The importance of these programs can’t be understated, especially in a volatile market where opportunities for young leaders are shrinking. “Before I crossed paths with KW Next Gen, I was a lost kid with no sense of direction in life, no mindset, no plan or mission”, says Angelica Kate Columnas. “The KW Next Gen program made it clear that life isn’t just about your goals but rather it’s the path you take, the process you go through, and the mission you fulfill in life.”

About KW Next Gen

Founded in 2015 with the guidance and vision of Gary Keller — the American entrepreneur, best-selling author, and founder of Keller Williams Realty — KW Next Gen was created as a vehicle to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs and world leaders to cultivate a growth mindset, live limitlessly, and fully claim all that life has to offer.

KW Next Gen learning experiences, coaching, and resources are fueled by a proprietary training program known as Quantum Leap (QL)—a set of tools designed to help individuals define and achieve their own version of success.

While KW Next Gen is a separate entity, it leverages the incredible success of Keller Williams Realty by tapping into the company’s strengths in education and training to equip young adults worldwide to pursue their passions, regardless of their industry. Our QL instructors are all KW associates or QL graduates and we are actively working to expand our community.
