Stepping up to ensure a brighter future

Next Generation United engages the energy, creativity, and desire of the next generation of leaders to make a difference and create a strong and vibrant local community. Members have the opportunity to improve their community through awarding grants, volunteering, and having a seat at the table.
 

creating change for the next generation

Next Generation United is led by a diverse group of young leaders who partner with United Way to change lives and build a better community. Next Generation United’s signature event, Pitch 10, gives members the power to decide which local nonprofits win up to $10,000 in grants. Ten organizations pitch their idea and attendees vote for their favorite to win.

Members also have the opportunity to mix and mingle with other young leaders who share the same passion for community and giving back at Millennial Mixers. Learn about what the most pressing needs are in Erie County, and how you can help solve them.
 

Why Engage?

  • Have a voice in improving the community we live in through the design and ownership of community projects.

  • Become educated on community issues and programs.
  • Learn and develop the skills required to design and implement successful community change initiatives.
