INVEST IN YOUTH. INSPIRE CHANGE.

You can make a difference in the lives of the students we serve. A gift to Genesys Works enables us to train and place more economically-disadvantaged youth into meaningful corporate internships. After participating in our program, student lives are forever changed.

Ways to Give:

The students we serve through Genesys Works aspire to succeed on a path toward college and career success, enabling them to achieve a higher level of financial security. They are on their way to being able to “weather a storm” in the future. But now, as their families live in poverty, Hurricane Harvey has had severe consequences on them. 

As the world watches on the news, we don’t need to state how devastating this event has been for the city of Houston and its residents. Our hearts are broken particularly for the families of our students who were displaced from their homes. The Genesys Works Emergency Relief Fund has been specifically dedicated to helping students facing particularly difficult challenges as they transition to their next living arrangement. 100% of all monies donated will go directly to our Genesys Works students facing an emergency need.
