GENESYS WORKS - BAY AREA wrote -
Too often, students growing up in low-income households are on a path to underemployment. These students have potential, but lack the skills, confidence and realization that they can enter and compete in the corporate job market.
Genesys Works – Bay Area was created 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.
Our program's unique integrated model has proven highly successful in preparing students to meet the challenges of a changing workforce. Here’s how it works: we identify and train motivated high school students in professional, technical, and communication skills in an intensive training program the summer after their junior year, then place them in meaningful year-long internships with leading companies in the Bay Area. We also provide them with support to, and through, college.
The results are extraordinary:
- 100% graduate high school
- 95% matriculate to college
- 94% persist in college
Join us today to bring more opportunities to the Bay Area's underserved youth.
