GenNext is GenNow

The GenNext Movement

GenNext is the next generation of local influencers, philanthropists and change-makers. We are driven by our shared love of community and our desire to give back to the place we call home. We do this by connecting young professionals in their 20s and 30s to fun, impactful and memorable networking, volunteering, and fundraising opportunities.

Led by a volunteer cabinet made up of emerging leaders from organizations around the Lower Mainland, GenNext is passionate about United Way.

Over the past three years, we’ve raised more than $107,000 for local after-school programs, giving thousands of vulnerable kids and youth access to healthy and safe activities and a place to explore and belong.

We want you to join us. Become a GenNext Influencer today.
