Your Gift. Their Future.
Right now, GoFundMe is matching the first $1,000 we raise from now until May 5, which means that your donation will have DOUBLE the impact.
Right now, every day counts. We need your help to lessen the impact of COVID-19 on our young professionals. Your gift will help ensure that these young people receive the support and resources they need, now more than ever.
We know that hourly workers and low-income communities will face a disproportionate impact from COVID-19 because of a lack of paid sick time and a safety net of resources. While some Genesys Works interns adapt to working remotely in their internships, more than 54% have been pulled from their workplaces.
These students are losing the chance for meaningful work that delivers the income, tools, and opportunities to carve a new path for themselves toward a more prosperous future.
At a time when they should be excited for proms, graduations and college decisions, our students are navigating virus-related fears, the challenges of lost wages, and suspended internship opportunities. Their relationships with Genesys Works help keep them motivated, hopeful and focused on their path to a more prosperous future, even through these unprecedented times.
