Get Involved with GenNext

Drive initiatives to empower youth in our community.

GenNext (formerly Young Leaders Council) empowers our community’s emerging leaders to positively affect change in the lives of youth in Peel Region through volunteerism, idea-sharing, and networking events.

The GenNext council is a group of students and professionals aged 20-35. They are active and emerging leaders working together to promote the engagement of our future leaders in Peel Region.

By getting involved with GenNext initiatives you can make a real difference in the lives of youth.

Here's how:

  • If you’re aged 14-24 and you have an idea for a youth-led, youth-initiated project to address community issues in Peel Region, you can submit an application for the Youth in Action Grant, a one-time grant opportunity for up to $2,000. Applications this year are due October 27, 2017.
  • You can attend our annual networking event that will take place in March 2017.
  • You can get on our email list and have exclusive access to all of the latest news, events, and opportunities with GenNext.
  • You can show your commitment to building a caring, connected community by donating to United Way of Peel Region.
