Genesys Works is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that trains and deploys high school seniors and program alumni to perform business and technical services for major corporations. 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.
Since it began in 2002 with its innovative model, Genesys Works has experienced tremendous success and growth. Our students are currently working at many Fortune 500 companies located in six (6) sites throughout the United States which presently includes Houston, TX; St. Paul, MN; Oakland, CA; Chicago, IL; Washington, DC; and New York, NY.
Through professional work experience, students realize first-hand that they can indeed thrive in a corporate environment and can achieve a much higher standard of living by earnestly pursuing a professional career than perhaps what they would otherwise be exposed to. With this knowledge and new-found confidence, students are able to significantly redefine their long term goals and set plans to pursue them. In fact, over 90% of Genesys Works graduates enroll into college immediately after high school and receive major scholarships due to our College to Careers Connection (CCC) program.
Another unique aspect of the Genesys Works model is its self-sustainability. A large percentage of program expenses are paid for with the earned income received from the provision of services to corporations. Genesys Works therefore has found a way to change the lives of students and serve as a diverse talent pipeline to corporations while not having to rely exclusively on contributed income to grow and sustain program operations. It is truly a win-win for all.
