  • Build clear and compelling visualizations of our data, enabling our country teams to make real-time decisions related to recruitment, learner progress, impact measurement, employer engagement etc.
  • Communicate—visually and verbally—complex data analyses and insights into clear messages for a broad range of audiences, from senior management to frontlines program operators

About 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.

We’re building a skills-training methodology that can serve hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions, of young people a year. And we’re building proof that this training creates real business outcomes for employers, and lasting career impact for trainees—so everyone has the incentive to invest in skills. Our goal is to help our students achieve personal and professional success—and fundamentally change their life trajectories. Generation programs prepare unemployed or underemployed young people, aged 18 to 29, for jobs in four sectors: healthcare, technology, retail/sales, and skilled trades.

Today, Generation is active in fourteen countries with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.
