The mission of Genesys Works is to enable low-income, innner city youth to enter and thrive in the economic mainstream. Genesys Works serves as a bridge between our education system and the technology-driven demands of the 21st century workplace. We help underprivileged students break through environments of low expectations to discover that they can succeed as professionals in the corporate world. A transformation takes place in the lives of Genesys Works students as the four areas of our development program (Technical Skills, Professional Skills, Work Experience and College & Career Connection) are required in a culture of high expectations.
Genesys Works provides an innovative bridge between education and technology-enabled jobs for low income youth. This workshop will provide an overview on how to make education and a professional career relevant to inner-city youth.
