Why NExtgen?

Manatee County’s unique family resource guide

  • DIRECT DISTRIBUTION into kid’s backpacks…does not rely on ‘eye-catch’ distribution (i.e., copies left on display stands at gas stations or grocery stores)
  • FAMILY ORIENTED content, interviews with leading figures in the local community, health and fitness issues, fantastic free competitions, and much more!
  • All revenue from the magazine is reinvested back into ELC programs to increase childcare funding assistance and reduce waitlists.
  • BE FEATURED alongside names such as Michael Saunders Realty, Blake Hospital, Manatee Memorial Hospital, LWR Hospital, Coastal Orthopedics, Neal Communities, Nestle, Bright House, the Pittsburgh Pirates, SRQ Airport, BMO Harris Bank, and the Florida Pre-Paid College Board.
