GenNext of Burlington & Hamilton is a team of dynamic young professionals who are passionate about driving social change.

We believe the foundation of strong communities is built by the genuine desire to help your neighbour. Our goal is to encourage young professionals to better understand the social issues that exist in Burlington and Hamilton and to inspire them to do something about it.

We operate as a committee of the United Way of Burlington and Greater Hamilton and ultimately seek to build a stronger Burlington and Hamilton through meaningful volunteering, fundraising and advocacy efforts. We aspire to be a consistent and present voice for social issues. Together we will continue to prove that young people are committed to truly helping make a difference in the community we live, work and play.

Our 2015/2016 Cabinet term has committed to supporting LGBTQ and Newcomer Youth as a part of an overarching theme of inclusiveness as a foundation of strong communities. We run a number of events each year to support our goals. If you’re interested in partnering, volunteering or just chatting we’d love to connect!
