About us

Genesys Works delivers pathways, possibilities and real-world opportunity by training underserved and economically disadvantaged high school students in areas that visionary companies value. Investing in Genesys Works is an investment in the community. Simply put, we have created an infrastructure that makes business environment internships invaluable to both students and employers. Our recruitment approach is wide and allows us to appeal to a large cross section of high school juniors, whom we engage in a conversation about a meaningful internship.\\

Through the Genesys Works program, high school students build confidence and realize they can succeed as professionals in the corporate world. Our program's unique model has proven highly successful in preparing students to meet the challenges of a changing workforce. Through this program, we are able to bridge the gap between the worlds of business, education and philanthropy.


To enable economically-disadvantaged high school students to enter and thrive in the economic mainstream by providing them the knowledge and work experience required to succeed as professionals.

Throughout the program, students realize firsthand that they can thrive in a corporate environment and that pursuing a professional career can help them achieve a much higher standard of living than they are accustomed to. With this knowledge and continuous guidance from the Genesys Works staff, they significantly redefine their long-term goals and set plans to pursue them. In fact, over 95 percent of Genesys Works graduates enroll in college immediately after high school, and most are the first in their family to do so.


In true partnership with schools, achieve a new culture in inner-city schools in which the pursuit of a professional career becomes "the given" for all students.
