How can St. Louis’ young professionals participate in meaningful volunteer opportunities, learn from influential leaders and network with a diverse group of peers? There’s one easy way: United Way’s GenNext.

With GenNext, you get it all – the friendships, the fun and the opportunities to further your career in a variety of ways.

Volunteer & Network

In addition to quarterly networking opportunities for all members, GenNext regularly welcomes dozens of young professionals to local nonprofit agencies to volunteer. Sometimes it’s painting, sometimes it’s gardening, sometimes it’s playing with kids – but it’s always a good time. See upcoming volunteer & networking opportunities


As a benefit to active GenNext members, GenNext hosts monthly executive lunches with some of the region’s most successful business people. These intimate lunches are limited in size to provide participants with the chance to ask questions and engage in conversation with the speaker. These are a great way to learn and connect with peers and executives.


So, what are you waiting for? Join in the fun! Sign up for the GenNext newsletter to become a member and begin receiving your invitations to all GenNext events. You can view photos from previous events and stay connected with our blog.
