We are Genesys Works
History of Genesys Works
Genesys Works is a non-profit organization dedicated to building bridges between economically-disadvantaged high school students, businesses seeking technology-proficient workers, and an inner-city public education system struggling to produce high-quality, market-ready graduates. Genesys Works - Twin Cities was created in 2008 to transform the lives of minority and low-income youth in Minneapolis and St. Paul while serving the business needs of the Twin Cities corporate community.
Genesys Works was founded in 2002 by an ex-Compaq Computer executive in Houston to fulfill his vision of improving the prospects for low-income high school students while introducing a new stream of diverse workers to corporate America. A social enterprise opportunity emerged: train students in IT services needed in large companies and place them as outsourced talent under contract with corporate clients. In 2008, Genesys Works launched a program in the Twin Cities that is now rapidly expanding to serve the needs of more students and companies in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
