WeGive.org is such an amazing and functional outlet for people who want to give back but just do not know where it is needed. It is so simple to find an organization that you believe in. I feel very fortunate to have a website like this one where I can rest assured that my donation is going where it is needed and where I intended. Look. Learn. Do. It is really is as simple as that.

Project Description

Our mission is two-fold: to empower young people to build thriving, sustainable careers and to provide employers the highly-skilled, motivated talent they need. We've created a new way to build skills and job-readiness — and applied it in high-growth industries like healthcare, technology, customer service, sales & retail, and skilled trades.

Generation’s Retail Career Advancement program provides the training, mentorship, and social support necessary for individuals to advance their career within the retail and service industry. Help us spread the world about this free-of-charge professional development program for young adults in Jacksonville.

Within the program, a core element is the focus on career development we provide our students through mock interviews, attending job fairs and interview attire shopping/funds and interview attire workshop. Through Give and Go, we are looking to further these specific efforts by requesting additional funds for this area of our program.
