Next Gen Men is redefining what it means to "be a man".

Next Gen Men is a Canadian nonprofit reliant on grants and generous supporters like you to create spaces that engage, educate, and empower men and boys around gender. If you believe raising the next generation of men to with positive masculinities, healthy relationships, and gender equity will change the world - please become a monthly supporter. Thank you! 

(PLEASE NOTE! Patreon is all USD. There is no comparable platform in Canada.)

Built on the core competencies of positive masculinities, healthy relationships, and gender equity we redefine what it means to "be a man" through:
  • Our Next Gen Men youth programs where we unpack what it means to "be a man" with boys aged 12-18
  • Our monthly Wolf Pack discussion groups (in YYC, YYZ, and YEG [YVR coming soon!]) where we hold space for conversations men don't normally have
  • Our Equity Leaders initiative where we engage leaders to Believe in Diversity, Behave Inclusively, and Become Equitable in order to smash the glass ceiling from the top down
  • The Modern Manhood Podcast hosted by German Villegas on the lives and viewpoints of many different male voices talking about their own masculinity
  • And Breaking the Boycode where Jonathon Reed explores boys' inner lives—personal, emotional experiences that are often hidden from view
