We reverse pervasive unemployment for our graduates and help them achieve economic mobility for themselves and their families.
We define impact as advancing on three dimensions simultaneously
Our annual and cumulative volume of graduates around the world.
Our employment and income outcomes within 3 and 6 months of program completion.
Our sustained employment, income, and well-being outcomes for our graduates over time.
Who We Serve
We believe that great employees are identified through their skills, rather than their demographics
Our learners have a range of profiles by age, education, ethnicity, gender and income.
Generation reverses pervasive unemployment
72% of Alumni are in a role that is related to their Generation training, which positively impacts career growth and financial health.
Our graduates find employment quickly…
…and stay employed for years
Graduates make strong progress on their economic mobility journeys
We want to see our graduates in jobs that provide stable, living wage incomes, and we see strong progress from different starting points. Our network countries fall in three World Bank country income groupings: lower-middle income (India, Kenya, Pakistan, Ghana), upper-middle income (Brazil, Mexico), and high income (Australia, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Singapore, Spain, the UK, the USA).
Our graduates are earning salaries they use to make ends meet and for education, housing, healthcare, and more
And this is expected to be $1 billion by early 2024. Of this, $260+ million in Brazil, India, Kenya, Mexico & Pakistan where living wage ranges between $2000–$4000 per year.
As we advance all of these dimensions, we can start to create systemic change
We seek to change the way employers hire, and we support them to hire from a nontraditional talent pipeline. We look at the percentage of entry-level positions filled by Generation graduates in a given city and profession to understand if we are changing the employment landscape. We call this “impact share”.

Independent Third Party Impact Assessments
As we grow, independent third party evaluations help assess our program impact for learners, graduates, and employers, so that we can continue to improve and expand our programs. We have begun conducting evaluations in several of our countries with the support of experienced research agencies and academics.Learn more
