The GenNext program was created in 2007 to provide Winnipeg’s future leaders with an opportunity to become engaged in their community while networking with like-minded individuals who share a passion for our city. GenNext brings people together to create meaningful social change in Winnipeg by providing tailored involvement opportunities and unforgettable networking experiences that impact you and the city where you work, live and play.

Join the GenNext network—develop your potential, make valuable and lasting contacts, and have fun in the process!

The GenNext Program is managed by a volunteer Council of current GenNexters with the support of United Way staff.
