About the generation

At the same time, certain jobs remain in high demand, and 40 percent of employers say they have entry-level vacancies due to a skills shortage. To date, more than 38,000 people have completed generational programs preparing them for meaningful careers in 14 countries. Generation works with more than 3,900 employer partners and many implementation partners and donors. Please visit usa.generation.org for more information.
