This Is What It Feels Like Calgary

Learn More

What does it mean to ‘be a man’ today?

How do we define masculinity?

 How can we end gender-based violence and discrimination?

What does a healthy relationship look like?

How do we talk about mental health with our friends and family?

At Next Gen Men, these are the questions we’re trying to answer.

Our programs disrupt the prevalent ideas and misconceptions about what it means to ‘be a man’ today. We move beyond the stereotypes and engage, educate, and empower boys and men to make a positive impact on their communities.

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 and gender equality 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.
