When launched in 2016, Generation Work focused explicitly on addressing barriers that can put career-supporting opportunities out of reach for young people of color in low-income families. As Generation Work enters a new phase, three partners have documented lessons and challenges in advancing this initiative. This Annie E. Casey Foundation blogpost discusses the documented key ingredients for removing barriers and advancing equity for young workers — such as trust, time, training, staff buy-in, personal introductions with employers, and multiple routes to the right fit between employer and employee.
