Your gift. Their future.

Every gift to Genesys Works empowers youth to reach the economic mainstream.
Right now, our students are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. This global pandemic has pulled some of our young professionals out of the workplace. Which means many of our students may lose the chance for meaningful work that delivers the income, tools, and opportunities to carve a new path for themselves toward a more prosperous future.
The coronavirus outbreak has underscored the social inequalities we continue to face as a nation. We know that hourly workers and low-income communities will face a disproportionate impact from COVID-19 due to lack of paid sick time and a safety net of resources. 81% of Genesys Works students already qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Our students’ paychecks help support their families. 40-50% of high school students need to work out of necessity. As many parents face losing their paychecks, their child’s modest income becomes ever more critical to meet the most basic of needs.
