Changing Lives: CompTIA, TransUnion, and Northern Trust sponsor Genesys Works - Chicago's Young Professionals
Genesys Works – Chicago is proud to announce its partnership with three industry giants: CompTIA, TransUnion, and Northern Trust. All three companies have agreed to sponsor major parts of the program to allow for more of Chicago’s high school students to have an opportunity to change the trajectory of their lives through Genesys Works.
After learning about the Genesys Works program through the Illinois Technology Association, technology giant, CompTIA, came forth to support Chicago high school students with aspirations of breaking into a professional, technical field by sponsoring three Young Professionals in the Genesys Works – Chicago program. With their generous donation of $3,333, Genesys Works was able to fully cover the training costs of Joshua Greenwood and Christopher Hayes of Chicago Tech Academy and Ivette Garcia of John F. Kennedy High School.
In addition, TransUnion has continued their ongoing partnership of Genesys Works – Chicago by sponsoring the training of two Young Professionals for the second consecutive year. This year, TransUnion will be presenting Genesys Works – Chicago with $5,000 to sponsor Katelyn Ryce of Dunbar Vocational Career Academy and Felix Vasquez of Gurdon S. Hubbard High School.
Finally, wealth and asset management company, Northern Trust is providing Genesys Works – Chicago with $12, 500 to support the college access portion of the Genesys Works program. Northern Trust has long been a major partner of educational groups including Genesys Works – Chicago’s new school partner, the Noble Network of Charter Schools. We are excited to build a relationship with Northern Trust and to increase our efforts to assist our Young Professionals in reaching their dreams of attending college.
We thank all three corporations for their generous donations to the Genesys Works – Chicago program. We look forward to being able to utilize the funds to improve our program and hope to continue to build upon the relationships with CompTIA, TransUnion, and Northern Trust throughout the future.
