It all starts with the basics: why are we doing this, what have we achieved, and what have we learned?
Five years ago, Generation began offering a new way to gain skills and employment: providing career-launching skills for young people and the talent that employers need now. We are continually improving our programs, expanding our partnerships with companies and governments, and making our programs relevant in the regions where we work.
To tackle unemployment at a global scale, we developed a flexible methodology that works across countries and contexts. Since launching as a youth-employment initiative, Generation has expanded to reach mid-career workers. We also learned that we could reach more students by engaging with a wider variety of employer partners, as well as by launching TVET partnerships.
Generation graduates are diverse and changing employer hiring biases around the world. We train people from all backgrounds and education levels, and guarantee interviews at companies with open positions, promoting equal opportunity and representation in every sector.
