Around the world, there's talk of a "lost generation" as 75 million young adults worldwide find themselves out of work, and many more struggle to make ends meet for themselves and their families. At the same time, 40% of employers say they find it difficult to recruit for entry-level roles. Generation aims to close this gap for 1 million young people, connecting them with skills and jobs in five countries (Kenya, India, Spain, Mexico and the US) by 2020.
This year, in the US, we hope to expand into several new cities including Chicago, LA, and NYC -- but we need your help to do it! Like elsewhere around the world, these cities are home to young people looking for the opportunity to learn new skills, work hard, and change their lives for the better. Check out their incredible stories by watching our video, and help us change lives by donating to our fundraising campaign.
