SteerFW offers a number of different programs throughout the year in addition to our monthly social events in which you can mingle with like-minded peers. Our programs include Keyholders, GenerationNext, and community volunteering. Learn more about each below.


Keyholders is a fast-track civic engagement program. Keyholders participants will attend five focused evening sessions throughout the summer and early fall that cover key aspects of Fort Worth, including history, government, economic development, and civic engagement. At each session Keyholders participants will have the opportunity to learn from and network with local leaders in these core topics.

The program culminates with an event allowing Keyholders participants to network and potentially match up with local community organizations that can benefit from a young professional's involvement. Past positions have included Board of Directors shadow seats, marketing, community outreach, etc. The focus of Keyholders is to move participants quickly towards engaging in the city and its organizational infrastructure.

Our 2021 Keyholders Program is now open for applications:


GenerationNext: State of Your City is our annual event tailored for young professionals in which Mayor Betsy Price and city leaders come together to discuss pertinent issues facing Fort Worth both currently and in the future. Last year, GenerationNext: State of Your City was held on April 18th at Rahr and Sons Brewing.

In addition to GenerationNext, we offer many other civic engagement-related events throughout the year in which you can learn more from city leaders and organizations in a more casual setting. These include our Lunch and Learn and Policy and a Pint series. Keep up with our calendar or follow us across social media to join us there.


SteerFW offers multiple volunteer opportunities per year. Most recently, we have worked together to renovate local schools and neighborhoods; provided support at community events including The Cowtown Marathon, the North Texas Wellness Fair, and Rockin' the River; and provided for those in need through organizations including the Tarrant Area Food Bank and Cowboy Santas. You can find future event dates here on our calendar page, in the Weekly Steer, and across social media.
