The Project

“Demo Day” hosted by the Chicago Community Trust included six presentations featuring innovative approaches for making our community a better place. The GenG Project featured a proposal to complement current educational efforts by bridging young scholars to careers in the booming green economy. Each Collaboratory presented to a live audience and a panel of experts. The GenG Team gained valuable connections and feedback.

GenG Mentorships

The GenG Mentorship

The GenG Mentorship is a 1:1 session with GenG Scholars to empower them to be leaders for positive social impact and to provide them a means of expanding their social capital and connections in the booming green economy. By connecting  a role model from the local green economy at a critical age of student development, The GenG Project will empower a new generation of scholars to enter the low carbon economy.
