About the organization
You will be part of Generation – Generation is the world’s largest, fastest scaling global employment program, providing young adults with the opportunity to launch successful careers and change their life trajectories. Our goal is to deliver for our learners and employers simultaneously: supporting the personal and financial well- being of our graduates, while helping businesses make entry-level hires who are higher productivity, higher quality, retain longer, and are faster to promotion than peers. Founded by McKinsey & Company, Generation is its own legal non-profit entity active in 7 countries to date – USA, Kenya, Spain, Mexico, India, Hong Kong, and Singapore – and is actively launching additional sites.
About our approach
Generation’s programmatic approach includes operating 3-12 week “bootcamp” trainings for young adults to prepare them for employment in a specific profession. The Generation curriculum team designs curricula for the “bootcamps” across our countries and professions. Trainings are based on the technical and behavioral skills and mindsets specific to a given profession determined by our team’s analysis. Technical and behavioral skills and mindsets are taught and practiced in an integrated way throughout the bootcamp training.
Generation instructors are instrumental to the successful delivery of these programs. As the individual that interacts with participants on a daily basis, instructors have the greatest potential to ensure Generation participants succeed during and beyond the program.

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 nine countries—78 cities and 195+ sites—with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.
