NextGen Testimonials

“I love being a part of NextGen! It’s much more than a traditional networking group. It is built around building genuine connections with younger generations who are often hard to find in Castle Rock. With meetups like brewery tours to more physical activities like Zorbo, rock climbing, and zipline adventures, NextGen offers a diverse range of activities. I appreciate the no-pressure opportunities to connect with the community and local businesses as we shape Castle Rock’s future.”
