Are you: 

  • A college graduate saddled with nearly $30,000 in student loan debt and struggling to find a job?
  • A former service member struggling to adapt to life after service?
  • Living with your parents, delaying marriage, or not buying a house due to low wages?
  • Working multiple jobs just to make ends meet while your savings account remains nearly empty?

I bet you answered yes to at least to one of those questions. If not, you know someone who is there or has been there. They are scary and frustrating situations.

We are the Millennials, the world’s second largest population group next to Baby Boomers, and we face challenges like a major economic crisis, a highly competitive job market, a widening gap between rich and poor, and difficulty accessing quality of life improvements. 

Sadly, that's not the end of the story.

According to the International Labor Organizations 2014 Global Employment Trends Report, youth will continue to suffer from low wages along with limited new job opportunities. That means less money for you, your partner and your future.

So what do we do?

I’ve spent the last year researching our generation. I’ve spoken with colleagues and friends and found we are educated, and certainly do not lack ideas or creativity. Our generation is the single most educated generation in American history and 27% of Millennials are creatively self-employed. The problem is we are a heterogeneous group - meaning we represent a wide range of ages and interests. With such diversity, divisions have naturally occurred.  

Meet GenYize

GenYize breaks down intergenerational barriers and creates an atmosphere for communication and collaboration. We bring all types of Millennials - the college student, the young professional, the entrepreneur, newlyweds, the parents - together to share knowledge, connect, and make changes.

Our goal is to establish Millennials as a generation of Solutionists, who work together for peace and economic prosperity.
