What is GenNext?

GenNext® is a program that encourages people in their twenties and thirties to become involved with United Way Halton & Hamilton through giving and volunteering. Working with a Cabinet of volunteers, GenNext creates opportunities for people to support United Way Halton & Hamilton, its funded agencies, and to get involved in the community.

Our mission is simple. We want to create opportunities for young professionals to roll up their sleeves, get involved in our communities and add to a meaningful dialogue. GenNext will aim to engage volunteers to understand the issues that confront people in our region, to actively connect with and contribute to the community, and to influence positive change through meaningful volunteering and giving opportunities.

The GenNext Cabinet organizes fundraising events, promotes volunteer activities, encourages people to contribute to their community, and provides a forum for young professionals to connect. Our signature engagement event is “Banter with Bigwigs”, a networking opportunity to connect with industry professionals.

As we aim to build the next generation of ambassadors of United Way – who will create awareness and encourage fellow local young professionals to support the important work of United Way Halton & Hamilton – we look forward to having you join us in our conversations and events.
