Generation Ceremony $1,000
Sponsor a graduation event. The Generation graduation event is a significant milestone, and a meaningful celebration that marks graduation ceremony with cap and gown to celebrate the completion of the program. For most of our program participants, this is their first-time participating in a graduation ceremony so it is a defining and memorable moment as they transition to the workforce.
Generation Student $2,500
Sponsor an individual and be an active partner in his/her journey: Generation U.S. currently offers programming in 11 professions across 13 U.S. cities, and the average cost per participant is $2,500. Invest in a future individual, and be an active partner in his/her journey.
Generation Advocate $5,000
Provide weekly stipends for 10 individuals during the duration of the program: Our learners face a myriad of life challenges, including those as basic as transport to the training site and even as something essential as food. To allow Generation learners to manage their lives during the training and to focus on learning, we provide weekly stipends to help alleviate some of their financial burdens.
Generation Tech Club $10,000
Sponsor a class of future IT help desk technicians: Generation fundraises for all programmatic expenses that includes CompTIA A+ certifications, books, test materials, and even computer replacement materials. The learners disassemble the lab computers to get real, hands-on training. This is especially critical to our kinesthetic learners. Our students have to remove all components, including the motherboard. Learners get all the right skills to start their new tech careers off right.
Generation Scholar’s Society $12,500
Employer partners and workforce funds cover up to 80% of programming expenses, and we fundraise for the remaining expenses. Your gift will cover the remaining expenses (on average) to provide one cohort of 25 learners access to career pathways that will change their future trajectory.

“I wasn’t in there looking for a job. I went and did what they taught me in the program. I did the interview, and before I could leave class that day, I had a job.”
