Get involved

Behind our work, there are people who get involved in big and small—but always significant—ways. Our most pressing challenges demand the force of our entire region, and its smart, dedicated, and generous people—like you!

Although COVID-19 has changed how we think about getting involved, our approach to events and volunteering is adapting to meet you where you are, and we’re always on the lookout for creative ways to connect with our supporters through philanthropy and fun.

We’re all about bringing people together, and although we’re keeping things virtual for now, there are still many ways you can support GenNext East Ontario.
