THE ISSUE

In order to safely return to our way of life, contact tracing workers are needed to map out active cases.

IN FACT

Vulnerable populations are going to be hardest hit by the effects of the pandemic. Employment and training are important factors aiding recovery.

OUR SOLUTION

Fast training and placement. This role is a key component of being able to resume normal activities and for stabilizing the economy.

Recruiting & training talent in your community, in just one week.

Generation USA rapidly recruits, trains, and places unemployed and underemployed individuals by providing support to learners, working with public entities from the start to identify skill gaps and vacancies, and tailoring the training curriculum to their needs.

Looking at the new economic landscape, driven by the pandemic, we see an opportunity to train and place new hires in healthcare roles and upskill existing healthcare workers across the U.S. in partnership with local and state health departments, businesses, nonprofits, universities, and community groups.

We have launched COVID-19 response upskilling programs in Italy, Mexico, and India, with five more countries in the pipeline.
