Breaking Through is a significant milestone in the Genesys Works program. It is the culmination of the 14-month journey of professional skills development, a year-long paid internship and building impactful relationships. It is a time to celebrate the hard work of these young leaders as well as what is next. As we continue to respond to new needs that emerge as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we have an opportunity to rise to the occasion through adapting and innovating. So, we are moving Breaking Through ONLINE!
Please join us live on August 4th at 4pm Pacific for our first ever virtual Breaking Through ceremony. Keeping true to the original format, the virtual ceremony will:
- Be driven by our young professionals
- Include students’ impact stories
- Recognize key supervisors, corporate, and community partners
- Celebrate the “graduation” of our young professionals in to the Genesys Works Alumni Program
We are excited to increase the accessibility of this special occasion beyond physical or geographic limits. And, we are committed to bring our entire community together, now more than ever, to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of our 7th Bay Area cohort of young professionals!
Breaking Through is also a significant fundraising opportunity for Genesys Works. All funds raised through sponsorships and direct contributions go toward programming and support for local students to continue their journey toward economic self-sufficiency. As we navigate these unprecedented times, financial contributions enable us to continue to work toward our mission and build career pathways for local youth and are more important now than ever.
We will be updating this page with RSVP information and the link to the stream. We look forward to seeing you there!
