In October 2020, Verizon and Generation announced a new multi-year strategic partnership aimed at closing the opportunity gap for American workers and expanding access to digital skills. A commitment of over $44 million from Verizon will significantly increase access to a free, technology-focused career training program to help reskill workers. This effort is part of Citizen Verizon, Verizon’s responsible business plan for economic, environmental and social advancement, and will build the foundation to reach the company’s goal of preparing 500,000 individuals for jobs of the future by 2030.
Some of our programs are now accepting applicants nationwide. The Digital Marketing Analyst, IT Support Specialist, Jr. Cloud Practitioner, and Jr. Web Developer programs are open to individuals around the country.

Generation: Exactly What Employers Need
We focus on tracking and raising the return on investment (ROI) that employers get from recruiting and training. As a result, your new hires operate at higher productivity, with longer retention, and faster speed to promotion.
A gift to Generation provides people across the country with the support and training they need to begin a successful, sustainable career.
“We’ve designed our new programs specifically for workers who are unemployed, underemployed, facing job displacement due to automation, or further challenged by the pandemic to be delivered at scale; and as always, providing both technical and professional ‘soft skill’ training and support,” said Sean Segal, CEO of Generation.
“We think most people can do anything when they’re ready,” Segal said. “It’s never too late to invest in yourself. And this program, while it’s a big commitment, is also free, and it has the potential to change lives. So if you’re thinking about it, apply tomorrow and start the journey.”
An often-overlooked group among the job candidate base are opportunity youth, defined by the Rockefeller Foundation as young people between the ages of 16 to 24 who are neither in school, nor working. In the U.S., that’s an untapped talent pool of 6.7 million individuals.
There will be no classes Thursday & Friday and our offices will be closed as we reopen on Monday, Nov. 29th! From all of us at Generation USA, Happy Thanksgiving!
