Our Impact

The primary benefit of Genesys Works comes from  our students' higher rates of college enrollment and completion, and a greater ability to obtain meaningful employment given their internship experience. Almost all program participants enroll in college and they complete degree programs at much higher rates. Genesys Works sets students on the right path to achieve career success and economic self-sufficiency, generating substantial economic and social value for society.

A recent study published by Columbia University's Clive Belfield, Principal Economist for the Center for Benefit-Cost Studies in Education, shows the Social Return on Investment (SROI) of Genesys Works at 13 times - for every $1 invested in Genesys Works, there's an economic return of $13.45.
