140 Set Sail on Alumni Boat Cruise

We set sail on the Mississippi River on Wednesday, June 26 as we hosted out first annual Alumni Induction Cruise. We boarded 140 alumni, making this the largest alumni event we have hosted so far. 

That evening, Genesys Works’ College and Career Success Program welcomed Class 5 recent graduates into the program, expanding our program to 344 participants. The night started off with networking between Classes 1-5 as they got to know each other better through human bingo, followed by the annual award ceremony that recognized instances of student excellence from Class 5. Awards categories included: Best Attendance, Breakthrough, 110%, Ambassador, Top Dollar, Oil Can, ACHIEVER for embodying the values of Genesys Works, Most Improved, Scholarship $, Work Place Leadership, and Distinguished Alumni. 

After the introduction of the new Genesys Works– Twin Cities Alumni Interns and a taco dinner, students got the opportunity to reunite with classmates, as well as to continue to build their network with all other Genesys Works alumni. We concluded the night with over $1,500 worth of in-kind donations from local companies including Patrick's Cabaret, Dale Studios, the Science Museum, and Hennepin Theatre Trust.  We are so thankful for their generous contributions to the event!

Thank you to everyone who has supported our students over the last year. Here’s to another successful year with the new Genesys Works Alumni!
