Next Generation Network

The Next Generation Network empowers young professionals to help further the mission of The Family Tree through fundraising, awareness and advocacy. Created in February of 2011, the Next Generation Network is developing the next generation of leaders, supporters and advocates in the movement to end child abuse.

By joining The Network, young professionals can learn more about the issue of child abuse and neglect, meet other young professionals to expand their network, gain civic leadership skills and experience, and make an impact on families & children.

Members will join an exclusive group of passionate young professionals with insiders access to special events, networking happy hours, volunteer opportunities, and special projects throughout the year. 

Network events and initiatives are planned by a small group of young professional leaders - The Planning Committee - which meets every other month and work closely with Family Tree staff.
