“Genesis has been working to include youth (anyone under the age of 22 years old) into work for many years.
The dominant narrative tends to commodify young bodies and faces, while devaluing youth voices and perspectives.
These three women are our Summer Internship cohort from 2021. We are committed to including youth voices because most of the policies and laws we are pushing to change will impact them more. Youth need to be politicized in the way that they are engaged as most policy is made while excluding them.”
