2020 Ambassadors Lunch-In 1

Our second annual Ambassadors Luncheon is turning into a virtual “Lunch-In!” You can register here today. 

While our event will look different this year, we hope you will participate, so we can ensure that the young people we serve continue to receive the support and resources they need to keep their college and career goals on track and their futures bright.

During the Lunch-In, you will hear from Genesys Works Intern Ambassadors—young people at various stages of their professional journey, with the common experience of having been a Genesys Works intern who attended one of more than 30 underserved high school in five Houston-area school districts. You will learn how Genesys Works is changing the face of our future workforce, one young person at a time, and see how you are a vital part of that transformation.

Our goal is to raise $300,000 in support of Genesys Works. Our success in meeting this goal matters even more so today. Your generosity will allow us to be here for our Genesys Works students, now and after the crisis has passed.

We look forward to having you join us at the Ambassadors Lunch-In!
