Overview:Young people struggle to find jobs. Employers struggle to find skills. Our cutting-edge training program bridges the divide. In as little as 8 weeks, we give youth the practical skills and personal confidence for career success—and build a cohort of work-ready, high-energy new hires in key industries.
In our 5 pilot countries, we will train 1 million unemployed young people and place them in jobs by 2020. Globally, our ambition is much greater—we’re already working with our partners to scale the program and reach millions more young job-seekers.
Generation is the first program of the McKinsey Social Initiative (MSI), a non-profit organization created by McKinsey & Company to develop innovative, scalable solutions to complex social challenges. Working with stakeholders in the public, private and social sectors across the world, we use McKinsey’s analytical skill and management expertise to develop and test powerful new approaches to the world’s most pressing issues – and implement them at speed and scale.
