Genesys Works Internship Program
Program Description & Overview:
Genesys Works gives students the life-changing opportunity to work in a professional corporation while still in high school, but this is simply the first step in each student’s path to success. It is essential that our students go on to college, and 95% of them do just that. The goal of our Career and College Connection program is to arm students with the skills they need to enroll and succeed in college. During weekly meetings over the course of the school year, we help students explore career interests, choose and apply to colleges, complete scholarship applications, secure financial aid, and build professional and life skills.
