Why a Supervisor Celebration?
Too often, students growing up in low-income households are shut of today’s workforce. Nearly one in five students of color in the Bay Area drop out of high school, and even less graduate college at a time when the demand for college educated workers is rising. 
That's where Genesys Works comes in. Our unique 14-month program prepares students to break through barriers and achieve lasting academic and professional success. 
None of this would be possible without the dedicated commitment of our Coprorate Partner Supervisors who manage Genesys Works interns on a daily basis. This event is to celebrate them and recognize the impact they have had on their team, company, and community. 
What is Genesys Works - Bay Area?
Our mission is to provide pathways to career success for high school students in underserved communities through skills training, meaningful work experiences, and impactful relationships. For 5 years we have equipped and empowered more than 500 local students with the knowledge and skills required to achieve career success and a lifetime of economic self-sufficiency. 
Of our program alumni, 98% go directly to college and 90% persist beyond their first year. This fall, we placed 111 students into paid, year-long job opportunities with local companies.
