NexGen, is a new young adult advisory group. The 6-12 member group represents the voices of youth and young adults across Mai-Wel and will be advising, creating and innovating how Mai-Wel works with youth and young adults. Throughout the year, your thoughts, opinions, and feedback will help inform the work of Mai-Wel programs, content, initiatives, and new projects to meet young people where they are.

The NexGen works collaboratively to provide recommendations on ways to improve our programs and services affecting young people. Members are provided with opportunities to grow their skills in leadership through co-facilitating events and participating in training and professional development activities.

Members will get a chance to network with young people across Mai-Wel’s service and locations. You will be able to display your NexGen Youth membership on your resume and job applications to help you stand out from the crowd. Most importantly, the work you’ll be doing will influence and shape the programs and services that impact young people now and into the future!

Members have the opportunity to serve on the NexGen Youth Team while they are participants at Mai-Wel up until they turn 25 years old.

If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you!

Please submit your expression of interest below and we’ll be in touch with you soon!
