Whether you’ve called the New River Gorge region home for six months or six years or since you can remember, Generation New River Gorge is a place for you.
We bring together young people from across the New River Gorge region and surrounding areas who want to do good in their communities. We like to think of ourselves as a hub designed by and for young people - a place to connect, engage with other young professionals like yourself, and together create meaningful change.
Generation New River Gorge is part of Generation West Virginia’s network of local Generations across the state, all uniting together under the same mission - to attract, retain, and advance young people in the Mountain State. We do this by creating the changes we want to see in order to make West Virginia a place where young people want to work, live, and give.
As a young person living in rural West Virginia, it’s easy to feel cut off from the rest of the world. But you’re not alone. There is a network of young movers and shakers, just like yourself. Come find out at one our meetups or volunteering events.

There are so many ways to get involved in your community. By joining Generation New River Gorge we’ll keep you informed on upcoming networking events, volunteer efforts and professional development opportunities. Heck, if you have an idea for a fun event or community project you’d like to see, we’ll help you get it off the ground.
Generation New River Gorge is run by a volunteer-led board that meets regularly. We welcome folks from all ages and backgrounds, but our work is targeted toward young people ages 21-45. Generation New River Gorge is a local affiliate of Generation West Virginia, the statewide organization dedicated to attracting, retaining and advancing young talent in the Mountain State.
From hosting a New River Cleanup, to walking dogs with the New River Humane Society, we take a fun, boots-on-the-ground approach to helping our community through volunteer efforts.
And don’t worry. We leave plenty of time for good times and conversation. We've hosted WV themed trivia nights, and when the holidays roll around it's time for our annual "Ugly Sweater Holiday Bowling Party." Trust us, at Generation New River Gorge events there are plenty of good food, even better conversation and drinks to go around.
And there’s plenty of room for you.
