Dear Friends and Supporters,

But, while we’ve made incredible strides toward building a stronger, more diverse future workforce, there is still much work to do. Talent is distributed equally, but opportunity is not. Young people with the will and work ethic to succeed continue to have limited opportunities to meaningful work-based learning experiences. The challenge we face is significant, but so is the opportunity. If we can come together to help open doors, it will do more than impact individual lives. It will transform communities. As 2019 unfolds, we urge you to think about what doors of opportunity you might help open this year. Whether providing more internships at your company, supervising and mentoring an additional young professional at work, guiding a student from your school to our program, or providing the financial support necessary to sustain our operations, there is an important role for us all. We thank you in advance for your continued support of the students and mission of Genesys Works. With gratitude,

KATHERINE TAYLOR

DAVID WILLIAMS

Executive Director Genesys Works Houston

President & Chief Executive Officer Genesys Works

OPPORTUNITY

Since assuming our new roles, we’ve been met with an incredible network of passionate supporters to whom we feel an immense sense of gratitude, but it is the young people we serve every day who drive our unrelenting sense of duty to our mission. We’ve been inspired by students like Chukwuemeka (featured on page 4), whose maturity and professionalism far surpasses that of his peers. And we’ve been delighted to reconnect with program alumni like twin brothers Ruben and Rene (featured on page 6), who’ve gone on boldly and confidently to earn internships with Fortune 500 companies while persisting through college. Most importantly, we have learned that as much as we are changing the lives of our young professionals, they are really changing ours.

Opening Doors to

Opportunity. A simple word, yet so powerful. For the students we serve, teens from underserved communities brimming with motivation and untapped potential, access to life-changing professional opportunities is far too often limited or inaccessible. Yet, because of you, we are able to open doors of opportunity for hundreds of talented youth each year in the Houston area. In the pages that follow, we are excited to share the impact your gift and partnership has had on our students, business partners, and the broader communities we serve. As you will read, great things happen at the intersection of motivation and opportunity, and we are proud to be your partners in this important work.

We achieve OUR MISSION t hro ug h:  Skills Training

 Meaningful Internship

THE PROBLEM The disparity

between what students are taught in the classroom and what’s needed for success in today’s workplace continues to widen, leaving many jobs unfilled and millions of young adults unemployed. Closing these skills and opportunity gaps is an urgent economic and social imperative, particularly for students in under-resourced communities lacking access to most professional work opportunities.

OUR SOLUTION By giving

students the opportunity to succeed in a professional work environment while still in high school, we open up career possibilities and pathways previously thought unattainable. Students complete our 14-month program with in-demand job skills, relevant work experience, elevated career aspirations, and increased confidence that their dreams of college and career success can become a reality.

Today, at only 16 years old, Chukwuemeka works in the IT department at ConocoPhillips. Though he is one of our youngest interns, he is excelling in his work there. His older sister, Chioma, is a Genesys Works alumna. Together, Chukwuemeka and his sister are paving the way for their family into corporate America. Before the start of his internship, Chukwuemeka successfully completed Genesys Works’ intensive eight-week training. During his training, he was taught valuable technical and professional skills, which he uses in his internship every day. He shared, “I’ve had to communicate with many of my colleagues at work, and whether it is physically or virtually, my Genesys Works summer training covered both areas extensively.” By participating in Genesys Works, doors are opening for Chukwuemeka. His internship has allowed him to meet and network with professionals in the IT field, like his supervisor, Jennifer. “My ConocoPhillips supervisor has helped me build my critical thinking skills,” he said. “My internship has put me closer to people that are living out my career aspirations.”

Genesys Works has given me the opportunity to learn business etiquette while improving my IT skills. They provide students like me a head start. Chukwuemeka Agu, intern at ConocoPhillips, student at Elsik High School

Empowering Houston’s Future Workforce Since 2011, CenterPoint Energy has been a valuable partner to Genesys Works, providing meaningful internships to 72 young professionals in the Houston area. Interns at CenterPoint bring real value to the teams they work on, according to Tracy Janda, community relations manager for CenterPoint. “The value of the interns’ training in specific business skills, corporate etiquette, and workplace expectations cannot be overstated,” she said. “Other company employees remark on these attributes, sometimes expressing surprise that these young people are high school seniors.” Through our partnership, CenterPoint is contributing to our community’s workforce pipeline. In addition to hosting their own interns, CenterPoint provides financial support for Genesys Works’ summer training program, which all interns complete. “We believe that the larger community benefits from the hundreds of Genesys Works alumni who receive the summer training and earn internships with other companies,” said Tracy. “Our partnership is creating a talent pool for future jobs in our community.” CenterPoint is making a difference in the lives of all Genesys Works interns. Together, we are building a stronger, more diverse workforce.

They’re Just Getting Started

For twins Rene and Ruben, Genesys Works was just the beginning. Growing up, they were not sure how to reach their postsecondary goals. Rene remembers, “I felt I was not prepared for any institution of higher learning, but Genesys Works supported me every step of the way when it came to college applications, resume writing, and even general advice.” With the support of Genesys Works, Rene and Ruben thrived in their internships at Enbridge and Walter P Moore, respectively. Early on the two young men recognized the doors an impactful internship experience could open and took advantage of every opportunity. Since Rene’s first internship with Genesys Works, he has participated in our working alumni program as an intern with Williams, gone on to a summer internship with Rolls Royce in Indianapolis, and returned to Williams in 2019 as a construction science intern. After his Genesys Works internship with Walter P Moore, Ruben went on to intern with Solar Turbines Incorporated, The Walt Disney Company, and is currently interning at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Nevada.

The training Genesys Works provided, along with the valuable work experience I received, allowed me to go on to intern with other Fortune 500 corporations. Ruben Garcia (right), former intern at Walter P Moore, student at University of Houston

Preparing for Postsecondary Success C.E. King High School has been a valued partner since 2010. In that time, we have worked together to provide pathways to career success to 115 of their students. It is the combined effort of principals, counselors, and teachers, like Darla Scott, that make this partnership possible. Mrs. Scott makes Genesys Works a priority and firmly believes in the capabilities of the students who enter the program. “Genesys Works students are different from their peers because they can truly see their potential in corporate America," she said. “They understand how to plan, set, and accomplish their goals.” Mrs. Scott ensures that her Genesys Works students find success because she knows the value of learning outside the classroom. In her own words, “Genesys Works brings a higher level of learning into the classroom environment. The program allows the students to see and practice the theory I teach in a real-world setting.” Together, with Houston-area schools and educators like Mrs. Scott, we are ensuring that every Genesys Works intern graduates high school with a plan for postsecondary success.

For the last five years, PwC has grown to be a generous supporter of Genesys Works, starting with PwC volunteers coaching young professionals in Mock Interviews. More recently, the PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc, awarded Genesys Works $50,000 through its Reimagine Grant program, which advances diversity and inclusion, and supports underserved groups by increasing access to the skills, training, and/or education underserved populations need to qualify for more meaningful, higher-paying employment opportunities in today’s marketplace. Genesys Works’ mission to provide pathways to career success for high school students in underserved communities through skills training, meaningful work experiences, and impactful relationships aligns with PwC’s purpose to build trust in society and solve important problems, particularly through its Access Your Potential™ initiative, a five-year, $320 million investment to build experiences for diverse students in underserved communities that ignite their passion for technology. PwC leaders John Swilling, Liz Sweigart (a member of the Genesys Works Houston Board of Directors), and Niloufar Molavi made this support of Genesys Works possible.
