Generation empowers young people to build thriving, sustainable careers and provides employers the highly skilled, motivated talent they need. Learn more at www.generation.org or find us at www.twitter.com/youemployed and http://instagram.com/youemployed.
We transform education to employment systems to prepare, place, and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible. We have a methodology that we believe can serve hundreds of thousands—and eventually millions—of people who are unemployed, underemployed, or need to learn new skills. Our program creates real business value for employers and lasting career impact for participants.
Go further, together
We are better together. We collaborate with and help others, both inside and outside of Generation.
Solve problems that matter
We work on activities that do the most to advance our mission, and rigorously measure our impact to guide where we spend our time and resources.
Better our best
We will never be perfect, and we always have more to learn. As long as we use data, experience, and dialogue to grow and improve, we are moving in the right direction.
Empower & support
We know that people do their best when treated with kindness and respect. We support and develop each other personally and professionally, allowing our unique talents and capabilities to flourish.
Here to serve
We commit to enabling the learning and growth of our participants, and to providing great talent for our employer partners. One alone is not enough, our success depends on serving both groups.
Be open & transparent
We believe in honest sharing. We welcome diverse perspectives, opinions, and ideas.
