✨ Be the Change

“In June, I wrote a letter to reaffirm our commitment to Black Lives Matter and promised to work to dismantle these systems of oppression and address racist behavior and ideologies. Since that letter, thanks to a partnership with Verizon, we have doubled-down on our promise to affect change at scale and train 500,000 individuals by 2030, focused on who we traditionally serve, those facing systemic challenges, Black and LatinX applicants, women, and those who do not have a four-year degree.”

— Sean Segal, Generation USA CEO
