Genesys Works When you think of Best Buy, 3M and Capella, you may picture electronics, Post-it notes and homework.

Now, thanks to a partnership with Genesys Works, these three Minnesota technology companies (amongst other orgs) have a means of giving back to Twin Cities’ teens by providing real world technology skills.

Genesys Works helps inner-city high school students join the economic mainstream through technical training and meaningful internship with large companies. “We provide an unparalleled opportunity including a year-long work internship and eight-weeks of pre-job training,” explains Genesys Works Executive Director Jeff Tollefson. “It is not a job shadow.”
