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.
We are better together. We collaborate with and help others, both inside and outside of Generation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We believe in honest sharing. We welcome diverse perspectives, opinions, and ideas.
Today, Generation is active in eight countries—64 cities and 150+ sites—with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.
Generation trains people ages 18-29 for jobs in four sectors. Our approach has seven components.
No single institution can solve the complex problem of youth unemployment alone.
