YWCA Princeton is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women, and NEXT GEN is engaging and
developing the next generation of women leaders to support that mission.

Our NEXT GEN Board engages a diverse group of women, ages 21-34, from across the Mercer County area
in board leadership activities that directly tie in with their interests and talents. Participants are engaged
in career enhancement, goal setting, and personal, professional and board leadership development all
while learning the responsibilities of a non-profit board, developing professional skills, building self-
confidence, honing financial literacy, and becoming community leaders. Board members also work
closely with the YWCA Board of Directors and have the unique opportunity to be mentored by influential
community leaders while serving on a self-governing board.

Applications to join the Board are currently being accepted. Please the button below to view the
application requirements and to apply!

"Participating on the YWCA NextGEN Executive Board has been such a rewarding experience. I've learned so much about Board governance, leadership, and strategic planning specifically for the non-profit sector from YWCA's Executive Board as well as my peers on the NextGEN Board. I have also strengthened tangible skills that I can apply to my professional development." - Nickita Rokad, YWCA Princeton NextGEN Executive Board Member, Secretary
