Genesys Works Chicago
Genesys Works is a nonprofit organization that trains and employs high school seniors to perform professional services for major corporations. Our mission is to transform the lives of disadvantaged high school students through skills training, meaningful internships, and impactful relationships.
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.
