NH Next

Are you a young person in New Hampshire aged 18 – 40  who wants to make the Granite State — or your corner of it — a better place?

Attendees will hear from, and engage with, other compelling young people who have made a difference in their communities or the Granite State. They meet others who share their interests, connect with individuals and organizations with whom they might partner to help create the change they want to see, and gain access to information and other resources that help them along the way.

Want to support this event? Sponsorship opportunities are available. We will also work with you to create a customized sponsorship that will meet your organization’s needs. Please email Will for additional information.

2020 Feedback

The 2nd annual event was scheduled just weeks after the pandemic started. Check out what one of our virtual attendees had to say as we had to make the pivot.

Great job with last week’s series of events! Stay Work Play is doing an excellent job both providing meaningful opportunities for young people to connect and engage in the short term, and furthering the organization’s long-term goals.”

2019 Attendee Take-Aways

NH Next attendees left inspired, connected, educated, and ready for action. Check out what the 2019 attendees had to say when describing their experience via the word cloud.

“I often attend events like this and sometimes I leave thinking that I could have spent my time better but not this event! It over delivered and I can’t wait to see what you do next!”

“…I learned that I have power and influence in my community, and can make a difference.”

“As someone who attends a lot of conferences and is often the youngest person in the room, it was remarkable to see the sheer number of dedicated, bright, and amazing young people we have working across the state! I hope to see some of those people at future conferences that aren’t necessarily targeted toward young people. It shows what an important role SWP has as a connector between industry and young energy.”
