Executive Summary

Unemployment upends millions of lives, and those with the fewest resources are hardest hit. Especially at risk are the jobless in mid-career and younger, underrepresented populations. Their climb into employment—already difficult pre-COVID—has been made even steeper by millions of experienced workers crowding the ranks of the laid-off. Workforce programs spend more than $500 billion annually, mostly in public vocational programs, which have the infrastructure to operate on a large scale but struggle with low employment and income outcomes. Generation offers a holistic, seven-step employment methodology that includes confirming job vacancies, recruitment, training, social support, job placement, and outcome-tracking. We have delivered an 86 percent job attainment rate and 3-4x income increase for more than 40,000 graduates across 14 countries. We also embed our programs and practices in public workforce systems in eight countries. By deepening this work and partnering with governments, we can place 500,000 people in jobs in five years.

Generation is proud of many of our accomplishments this past year—including accelerating the movement of our courses online, creating a program to help upskill frontline healthcare workers, and building a new coalition of partners to move toward more system shaping work. However, our greatest success this past year was supporting nearly 5,000 people through our program and achieving a 68 percent placement rate within three months of graduation. While this scale and job placement fell short of the goals we set at the start of 2020, we are proud that we were able to help so many through unprecedented circumstances.
