Generation USA Program Expansion in Wilmington

Generation USA is expanding its programming in Wilmington in 2019, as part of a partnership with WLA focused on reducing unemployment in the city. Generation’s process works with the employers to target employment sector needs, develop relevant curriculum and incorporate both social skills training and experiential learning models that allow graduates to be specifically prepared to interview, become employed and navigate the work environment successfully.


Generation is hiring local staff in Wilmington to ramp up and deliver the workforce development expansion. Positions open include a Business Development Manager, Workforce Readiness Program Coordinator Workforce Instructor, and Workforce Readiness Mentor.

Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers can’t find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation is a nonprofit founded in 2014 by McKinsey & Company to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale.



Made up of 30 leading businesses, civic organizations, and foundations, the WLA is the catalyst in identifying, engaging and supporting talented leaders in creating a dynamic Wilmington, Delaware.
