Annual Report

A career-launching job for every young person, anywhere in the world.

Generation is working to make this vision a reality through our global youth employment program.

Our mission: Empower young people to build thriving, sustainable careers and provide employers the highly-skilled, motivated talent they need.

Through our program, unemployed and underemployed young adults connect to the training, support, and jobs to change their path.

We solve a wide range of employer challenges—skilled talent shortages, lackluster on-the-job performance, and high turnover in important roles—with our unique approach and our determined graduates.

Transforming global employment

We aim to transform global employment practices through our work with employers, governments, communities, and other nonprofit organizations—creating a supportive environment rich in opportunity for those who otherwise might be disconnected from the workforce. We do this by working side-by-side with other organizations to build their capacity to prepare and place people into life-changing careers using the Generation approach. We’re already working on this with partners in Kenya, India, Singapore, and the US, including technical and vocational education and training institutions (TVETs), community colleges, and government organizations. We seek to expand this work over time to spark lasting change not only in lives of our graduates but in the employment system as a whole.

A new program to help mid-career workers launch new careers

Generation is expanding to serve mid-career workers who are looking to enter new fields—whether you have been displaced by a changing market, are returning to work after time away, or are simply in need of updated skills. The program, called ReGeneration, helps mid-career workers with wide ranges of experience develop the needed skills—technical, behavioral, and mindsets—to get the job you want. We train you, connect you with employers for job interviews, and support you, so you can launch a new career.

ReGeneration is currently offered in pilot programs in the United States and Singapore.
