About Us

ABOUT GENERATION

Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers can’t find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation is a nonprofit founded in 2014 by McKinsey & Company to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale.




OUR MISSION

A career-launching job for every young person, anywhere in the world.

Our mission is two-fold: to empower young people to build thriving, sustainable careers and to provide employers the highly-skilled, motivated talent they need. We have a skills-training methodology that we believe can serve hundreds of thousands—and eventually millions—of unemployed and underemployed young people a year. And we’re proving that this training creates real business value for employers, and lasting career impact for participants—so everyone has the incentive to invest in skills.
