Our programming isn’t free, but it is free for our students.

Every donation helps pay our expert instructors, supports a student’s stipend, paid internship, purchases a student’s laptop, or pays for industry-recognized credentials.

What’s Generation?

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.

Laid off from her job due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lareyes felt she had little to no opportunities available to her. She had call center experience but needed technical skills to move ahead.

“A life-changer.

This program is 100% what you make it. If you take what you’ve learned and apply it to your personal and work life you will do nothing but elevate.

Second Mile Ministries

After losing her job but taking steps to further her education, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and Kenyetta was feeling the financial and social pressures. Without a family network locally and searching for a way forward, she found Generation online. Convinced by the curriculum, support, coaching, and free certification testing, Kenyetta was “all in.”

“I am a natural-born leader.

I learned resilience triumphs all things and that practicing positive behavior skills and mindsets while networking with potential employers and building relationships with mentors and partners is just as important as achieving certifications, degrees, and accolades.

Homeless and a victim of domestic violence and abuse for nearly two decades, the week before Christina started Generation, things looked pretty bleak. She had never been employed full-time and lacked the skills to be on her own.

“The key to my success.

The most important thing that I gained during Generation was renewed self-confidence.

Generation in the press


“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.
