Open a Door. Create Impact Now.
Young people of color face significant barriers in their endeavors to enter a professional career and earn the livable wage they deserve. We care about that. Through research completed in 2016, we’ve learned that Genesys Works alumni who have completed college are making an average of $50,000, which exceeds the national average salary for those between 20-24 years of age.
And just like our young professionals, we care about our communities. Another study, conducted by Dr. Clive R. Belfield, Principal Economist at the Center for Cost-Benefit Studies in Education for Columbia University, found that for every $1 invested in Genesys Works, there is a $13.46 economic return to society.
