Genesys Works is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that enables inner-city high school students to break through barriers and discover through meaningful work experience that they can succeed as professionals in the corporate world. Students enter the Genesys Works program during the summer prior to their senior year and, after eight intensive weeks of training, are assigned to work at one of Genesys Works' client locations, part time, during their senior year. The training is designed to arm students with the knowledge they need to provide value to corporations in specific technical fields. Furthermore, students are trained on the professional skills needed (such as communications and corporate behavior) to enter and succeed in corporate environments.
