People often ask, “What is your biggest limitation to growth at Genesys Works?” The answer is easy. Jobs. Without meaningful internships, Genesys Works doesn’t work. The hallways of our urban high schools are filled with highly-motivated, capable students whose lives could be forever changed if provided with one thing. Opportunity. A chance to learn, grow, and thrive as a trained young professional working in the corporate world.
So how can you help? Easy. Help connect us with companies or organizations that could benefit from the services that our trained students can provide. And if you work for one of the 37 companies that are currently Genesys Works partners, we urge you to think about new and creative ways that you may utilize the talents of our students to address your business needs. While the jobs that our young professionals perform have been primarily in the areas of IT desktop support and help desk services, we have lots of students working to support the needs of teams in the areas of project management, business analysis, software testing and web site management. Wherever a company may have a need for part-time, cost-effective resources that can reliably perform a necessary function or simply free up full-time staff for higher-value tasks, we have a solution. Genesys Works.

We thank you in advance for your generous assistance as we work together to provide new pathways to prosperity for our city’s youth.
