High school intern Destinie Hawkins has always been ready to take on challenges! She is a senior at Westside High School and is ready to begin her journey as a college student.
During these difficult times, we are especially grateful for our Genesys Works community. We believe it’s more important than ever to uphold our mission by maintaining our students’ income stability and to prioritize the health and safety of our students, partners, staff, and the Bay Area community. As a member of the Genesys Works community, we want to keep you apprised of our team’s recent efforts.
What does it mean to give someone the gift of an opportunity? An opportunity can look like many things: a big break, a leg up, a head start, or simply…a chance.
We don’t talk much about this “opportunity gap” at the dinner table or on the news like we do hunger or homelessness. We rarely hear corporate leaders or politicians speak on the topic at conferences or rallies. But the truth is, those with extensive learning resources will academically out-perform those without. Although this lack of resource can be attributed to a number of sources, the outcome is always the same.
