Is a group of young adults making our community stronger in awesome ways.


We specialize in social events for social good.

GenNexters are people in their 20s and 30s who use events, activities and social media to connect with others to make a difference right here at home.

Through contests, competitions, mixers and other memorable experiences, we inspire others to learn more, dream more and do more.

This March, Join Us For #HopeMoves

March 8-21, 2021

Throughout the past year, Simcoe Muskoka residents living in poverty have faced barriers like never before. To help our most vulnerable, UWSM expanded our Urgent Needs Fund to meet the most pressing needs of our community when no one else could.

To celebrate the hope given through the Urgent Needs Fund, UWSM is bringing back the Month of Hope in March, and GenNext Simcoe Muskoka will be hosting #HopeMoves. This fitness challenge is one that can be done by anyone, from anywhere, and raises money to support the Urgent Needs Fund and the Simcoe Muskoka residents and families who will need assistance more than ever in the coming months.

Why GenNext?

GenNext is Now – our generation is now the largest living generation. That’s right, the largest. By 2028, this crew will account for more than 75% of the workforce in Canada. Now is the time to help build strong communities for our future.

GenNext is Passionate – we are on a purpose-driven path to create something amazing, because we believe that together, we can change lives.

GenNext is Involved – we want meaningful engagement and volunteer opportunities. We want to be inspired by others and, in turn, motivate other to get involved.

Join us for some amazing events this year!

Here are just some of the events that we’ve hosted or will be hosting this year!

  • Speed networking (with free LinkedIn headshots)
  • Day of Caring (a pop-up volunteering opportunity)
  • UWSM Amazing Race (learn about your community while racing against the clock – and other teams)
  • Community Dodgeball Tournament (admit it – you miss playing dodgeball too, don’t you?!)
