About 75 million youngsters worldwide are unemployed. But many employers aren’t able to find people with the expertise they need for job entry. In 2014, Generation was created to help bridge this gap — at both speed and size.
We are developing a skills-training curriculum which can support hundreds of thousands of young people a year, and ultimately millions. And we’re creating proof that this training produces positive business outcomes for employers, and enduring career effects for trainees — so everybody has the opportunity to invest in skills. Our aim is to help our students achieve personal and career success — and transform their life trajectories in a fundamental way. Generation services train young people who are unemployed or underemployed, aged 18 to 29, for employment in four sectors: education, technology, retail / sales and skilled trades
Generation currently operates in 12 countries—101 cities and 280 sites — with complex social, economic and labor market contexts.
