Next Gen Men is a nonprofit organization focused on building better men through youth and peer engagement, education, and empowerment. Our programs and initiatives promote healthy masculinities and gender equity with boys, young men, men, and people of all genders.

 

By addressing the root causes of gender inequities with open and honest conversations and learning about ‘what it means to be a man’, we aim to tackle some of the biggest issues facing society today from gender-based discrimination and violence, to social isolation and unhealthy relationships, to poor mental and physical health and wellness among boys and men.

Engage

We foster a fun, safe, and welcoming space for boys and men to explore masculinity, health, and relationships, and create lasting and meaningful friendships. We’re building a strong and supportive community that shares our values and vision.

Educate

We promote healthy masculinities, healthy relationships, and gender equiity through our program pillars of Self, Health, and Others. We’re on a journey of lifelong learning, so that we can better support the next generation of boys and men.

Empower

We equip boys and men with the confidence, support, and tools they need to contribute to their communities in a positive way and become the best versions of themselves.
