As part of the Verizon Skill Forward initiative, Generation USA’s free, fully online programs teach you technical skills, soft skills, and give you the support you need to succeed. We talk to employers in your area to find out what roles are open. Then, we create a learning experience that uses practical, hands-on learning in an accelerated, online-first format. Our staff provides instructional support and career advancement during your program, based on your needs.
After you’ve successfully completed the program, we’ll assist you with the next phase of your career journey by helping you to find full-time employment, internships, or apprenticeships. You’ll also be part of a growing alumni network of graduates.
Check out our program offerings below or take the quiz to see which program is right for you.
The technology industry has career options that can lead to various sustainable jobs. But, how do you know which technology path is the right fit for you?
We are ecstatic to launch Introduction to Technology, part of Verizon’s Skill Forward Initiative! These 3.5-hour workshops will help you discover if the technology industry is the right fit for you and which tech role matches your interests and personality.
This step helps us determine your eligibility to participate in a program!
You must be 18 years or older.
You have a high school diploma or GED, and do not currently have a post-graduate degree such as a Master’s degree.
You can provide proof of residency in the United States in the form of an official (U.S. local, state, or federal) issued government ID.
You have NOT already graduated from one of our programs (i.e., Junior Cloud Practitioner, Junior Full Stack, Digital Marketing Analyst, Junior Web Developer, IT Support Specialist). We would like to give others the opportunity to experience our tech programming.
You are motivated and excited to look for a new career, 3 months after you successfully completed our program.
Tell Us About Yourself
We will ask questions to better understand you, your interests, and how we can support you.
Our assessments, specifically the Digital Literacy Assessment, gauge the skills and logic required by some of our programs to ensure you are prepared and positioned to succeed from Day 1 of the bootcamp.
You’ll be redirected to a third-party platform, HireVue, to complete a video interview. This stage helps us get a better sense of who you are, why you are interested in Generation, and what you think it will take to be successful.
