Why Generation?

Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers can’t find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation was created in 2014 to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale.

Where is Generation?

Today, Generation is active in five countries—49 cities and 116 sites—with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.

How do we prepare young people for a career?

Generation trains people ages 18-29 for jobs in four sectors. Our approach has seven components.

  1. Jobs & direct employer engagement from the start
  2. Student recruitment based on intrinsics, effort, and employment standards for the profession
  3. Short and intensive “boot camp” covering relevant technical, behavioral, and mindset skills
  4. Support all along the way—including daily monitoring, weekly feedback, and mentoring
  5. A community that follows graduates into the workplace
  6. Return on investment for employers and students
  7. Data tracked throughout–to make sure we are constantly learning and improving.

Who is building Generation?

No single institution can solve the complex problem of youth unemployment alone.
