Genesys Works participants are launching incredible careers and becoming leaders in their own workplaces, and we are grateful to be a part of their journey.
This September, over 370 high school and college interns began their paid year-long internships! That’s over a 15% increase from last year! One intern is getting the unique opportunity to be supervised by Mar Keisha, a Genesys Works alumna.
Mar Keisha started her journey with Genesys Works 12 years ago where she interned at Hennepin County. She had impressed them, because a few years later, Hennepin County asked for her to return, where she now serves as an IT Analyst II. Mar Keisha enjoys being able to ask her intern questions, understand their goals, and be a part of their growth and development. When we asked why Mar Keisha wanted to become a supervisor, she said, “It would be great to connect with students that were in the same position I was in several years ago. I’m also able to guide and get them acclimated to a new environment, an environment that most student aren't going to know until they graduate college.”
Join us in our movement to close the economic opportunity gap through skills training, meaningful work experiences, and impactful relationships for young people. Make your #GTMD21 investment today and help us reach our goal of $15,000. Thanks to our generous former Board of Directors, gifts will be matched up to $6,280 through Thursday, November 18th!
Let’s empower the future leaders of the workforce together.
