What’s Generation USA?

Generation’s mission is to give free access to career training and jobs with a future. Our students may face a myriad of life challenges, including transportation, parenting and family challenges, food, and housing insecurity.

To allow Generation students to manage their lives during training and focus on learning, we provide a variety of resources and technical skills training, support and coaching, mentoring, and a lifelong network for our graduates.

“Generation programs allow people of all different fields or all different backgrounds – no matter where you’re at – to be able to move forward. I feel like I took a risk on myself, and Generation took this risk with me. My instructors allowed for that flexibility, which allowed me to essentially be on top of the work I had to do to jumpstart my career, and take on my responsibilities at home.”

“This program didn’t cost me a penny, and there are skills you can take away from it and opportunities like my Verizon opportunity that I was blessed with. There are so many positive reasons to join Generation’s programs. If you’re serious about developing your skills or making a career change, it makes sense to go in the direction of Generation.”
