Are you a young professional who believes in the importance of supporting your community? The GenNext movement is a unique opportunity for the next generation of leaders to bring about change right here in our community.



The United Way GenNext initiative promotes a new and exciting way for young professionals to get  involved in our community.

GenNext encourages people in their 20s and 30s to become involved with United Way—to more fully understand the issues that people in our community are faced with, to actively connect with and contribute to the community, and to influence positive change through meaningful volunteering and giving opportunities.

Who can be a part of GenNext?  Enthusiastic and energetic individuals who:

• Want to be in the know about what’s going on in our community

• Want to meet and be inspired by young philanthropists in our city

• Want to get involved in our community, and are wondering where to start.
