At the same time, 40 percent of employers say a skills shortage is leaving them with entry-level vacancies. Generation is a youth employment nonprofit with a dual mission to empower young people to build thriving, sustainable careers and to provide employers the highly skilled, motivated talent they need. To date, more than 25,000 young adults have graduated from the Generation program, which prepares young adults for careers in more than 100 cities and 250 locations across nine countries. Generation works with more than 2,600 employer partners and a wide range of implementation partners and funders. The organization was founded as an independent nonprofit by McKinsey & Company in 2014. For more, visit
