Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide pathways to career success for high school students in underserved communities through skills training, meaningful work experiences, and impactful relationships. We envision a future when all youth finish high school equipped and empowered with the knowledge and skills required to achieve career success and a lifetime of economic self-sufficiency.

Description

By giving underserved students the opportunity to succeed in a professional work environment while still in high school, we can open up career possibilities and pathways previously thought unattainable. Genesys Works empowers high school students from challenged backgrounds to achieve college and career success through skills training and meaningful work experiences. The primary elements of our program model are highlighted below:

  • Skills Training: 8 weeks of training the summer before senior year of high school.
  • Meaningful Internships: A paid, year-long internship at partner companies.
  • College and Career Coaching: Throughout the year, students receive more than 60 hours of guidance and counseling on appropriate college and career pathways.
  • Alumni Support: Guidance navigating the complex world of academic, social, and financial obstacles that might stand in the way of college and career success.
