We are mindful that no single organization can solve the complex problem of unemployment alone. Generation is always looking to expand the community of partners with whom we work.

Our network funders

No single institution can solve the complex problem of unemployment alone. We are grateful for our many generous supporters. Approximately half of our funding comes from philanthropy and half from employers & government donors.

How we work

About partnering with Generation

We aim to work with partners across different sectors to create a more supportive and inclusive environment for people of all ages to access employment opportunities and succeed in their careers.

We work with different types of partners: employers, corporations, and philanthropy.

And our collaboration depends on the partners’ needs and objectives and can include funding, in-kind support, and ecosystem engagement.

Why partner with us?

At Generation, we believe in the power of employment to transform lives, and we know that you do too. Millions of people around the world struggle to make ends meet, much less to save money that can transform their lives and those of their families. And too often, good-paying jobs – the foundation for income stability and long-term well-being – lie out of reach for people who face one or more systemic barriers due to their gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, education, and income.

With your partnership, together, we can create a world where everyone has the opportunity to build a better future.

Types of partners

At Generation we work with several different types of partners depending on the engagement and objectives


Generation typically partners with corporations that are looking to address skills gaps within their industry or region. We achieve that by designing and implementing programs that equip individuals with the skills they need to succeed in the workforce.

Corporations provide funding, expertise, and access to their networks to support the development and delivery of workforce development programs. Some may provide financial support to help fund the development and delivery of the programs, while others may provide expertise in specific areas such as curriculum development or job placement. They may also provide job opportunities for individuals who have completed our programs.

The partnership between corporations and Generation aims to create opportunities for individuals to develop the skills they need to succeed in the workforce, while also helping corporations address skills gaps and talent shortages within their industry.
