Genesis City is honored to be awarded $75,000 from Thunderbirds Charities.
This generous donation will allow Genesis City to continue the Trailblazer Program which serves disadvantaged youth, 14 to 21, who reside in low-income neighborhoods. Through this program, youth are shaped into true “Trailblazers” who overcome the multi-generational cycle of poverty by leading the way for others to access education and gainful employment. Over sixty-percent of the youth who participate in the program are the first in their families to earn diplomas and over ninety-percent will be the first in their families to attend college. Trailblazers blossom into impactful community leaders as they inspire other youth who experience the same barriers and are seeking similar opportunities. This rigorous program is the cornerstone of the Thunderbirds Charities Life Planning Center at Genesis City.
“The Thunderbirds are proud to support Genesis City Trailblazer program,” said Thunderbirds Charities President Chance Cozby. “They’re teaching our youth essential life skills, and we are happy to help their efforts.”
