Bridging the Gap Between Education and Business
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.
Throughout the program, students realize firsthand that they can thrive in a corporate environment and that pursuing a professional career can help them achieve a much higher standard of living than they are accustomed to. With this knowledge and continuous guidance from the Genesys Works staff, they significantly redefine their long-term goals and set plans to pursue them. In fact, over 95 percent of Genesys Works graduates enroll in college immediately after high school, and most are the first in their family to do so.
To enable economically-disadvantaged high school students to enter and thrive in the economic mainstream by providing them the knowledge and work experience required to succeed as professionals.
In true partnership with schools, achieve a new culture in inner-city schools in which the pursuit of a professional career becomes "the given" for all students.
