The NEXTGen Detroit Story

Why NEXTGen Detroit? And why now?

For the last 30 years there has been a shift in North America, both in the Jewish community and in many other communities — a shift commonly referred to as “disengagement.” Not so long ago, involvement in one’s community was an obligation. And now, it’s not.

With the goal of creating new ways to attract, engage and retain the next generation of Jewish Detroiters, Federation developed NEXTGen Detroit, an innovative platform for transforming the community into a vibrant home for young Jews of every background and affiliation.

Since its launch in 2012, NEXTGen Detroit has emerged as a national leader of young adult engagement, and is now a model for Federations across North America. Not too shabby.
