Executive Summary:

Unemployment upends millions of lives, with the greatest impact felt by those with the fewest resources. Workforce programs spend over $500B to offer a way out. The majority of this spending sits within public vocational programs which have urgent policy mandates and access to funding and infrastructure, but struggle with low employment outcomes. However, their huge scale means that shifting their focus from training to employment can result in jobs for millions of diverse learners. Generation offers an employment methodology that comprises seven holistic steps, including confirming job vacancies, recruitment, training, social support, job placement, and outcome-tracking. By embedding within public programs in Brazil, India, and Kenya, we can place 500,000 people in jobs in five years – and reach five million by 2030. The result will be a higher share of diverse profiles in professions previously beyond their reach, and financial independence for our graduates and their families.
