Generation is a global employment program that serves disconnected learners of all ages. Our mission is to transform education to employment systems to prepare, place, and support people in life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible.  Our vision is a meaningful career and sustained well-being for every person anywhere in the world.

We have a training and employment methodology that we believe can serve hundreds of thousands—and eventually millions—of unemployed and underemployed people a year. And we’re proving that this methodology creates real business value for employers, and lasting career impact for participants—so everyone has the incentive to invest in skills. Generation is an independent non-profit founded by McKinsey & Company.

 

Generation began operations in 2015.  As of today, Generation has had 35,000+ graduates globally.  We have programs for 26 professions in four sectors – healthcare, technology, customer service, and skilled trades – being run in 100+ cities across our thirteen countries (US, Spain, India, Kenya, Mexico, Brazil, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Italy, UK, Australia, and Pakistan). Generation is now the largest global ‘train and place’ employment program by annual graduates and is the fastest scaling.  Our job placement rate is 80 percent within three months, and 68 percent continue to be on the job one year later.  Most of our graduates are in jobs that place them at or above the 50th income percentile for their national youth peers and are registering income increases of 2-6X what they were earning prior to Generation. Cumulatively, they have earned over $135M in salary to date.  Many of our graduates use this income to support the well-being of their families (siblings, children, parents); nearly 55 percent of our graduates are female, and 40 percent of our students have dependents.  We have over 3000+ employer partners across our thirteen countries. Nearly 85 percent of our employers say that Generation graduates outperform their peers; and, 84 percent of our employers would hire Generation graduates again.  In 2018, Generation won the prestigious WISE Award for global education innovation.

Each Generation country has a local entity with a local governing board; and, each local entity has an affiliation agreement with Generation’s global entity.  The global entity provides the local entities with both program technical support (e.g. curriculum and instruction, recruiting, partnerships) and back-office support (finance, human resources, contracts).  Generation has 300+ staff across its global entity and local affiliates.
