Generation's mission is to provide a career-launching job for every young person, anywhere in the world.
We are a not-for-profit social enterprise that delivers tailored programmes to recruit, train and place unemployed young people into work. Though our unique approach we also solve a wide range of employer challenges—skilled talent shortages, poor job performance, lack of diversity, and high turnover.
Generation launched globally in 2015, and has grown quickly to become the world’s largest demand-led youth employment initiative. We have placed over 30,000 young people into roles (many of whom have suffered some form of adversity), working with over 2,000 employer partners to date across 10 countries and 26 professions.
Generation successfully launched the first UK programmes in March 2019, following 18 months of planning. This included a healthcare programme developed in collaboration with the NHS, and a Cloud Operations programme developed in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Following successful pilots, both programmes are now being scaled up, and we are expanding across London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Dublin.
