WHO WE ARE
Founded by the Global Shapers Athens Hub, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, ReGeneration is the largest paid placement, professional, and personal development program challenging brain drain in Greece by fostering youth employability.
Partnering directly with employers and academic institutions, ReGeneration is democratizing opportunity by actively connecting its graduates to meaningful career opportunities and re-engineering the mechanics between academic institutions and the labor market.
Our vision is to democratize opportunity for Greek youth by catalyzing the up and re-skilling revolution in Greece, empowering the next generation of young professionals to thrive in the Globalization 4.0 era and dream of a better future.
Professional and Personal Development
Through a holistic approach, ReGeneration aims to equip young individuals at the beginning of their professional lives, with the skills and tools necessary for professional and personal development. That is why we continuously invest in this holistic program that provides, aside from paid employment, targeted training and community service engagement, as part of an integrated experience that prepares participants to advance on both a professional and personal level.
Highlighting Talent and Skills
Taking into consideration both the needs of today’s young graduate generation, as well as current labor market demands, ReGeneration aims to bridge the gap between talented individuals, and companies seeking to find skilled entry-level personnel to meet their employment needs. The program offers graduates the opportunity not only to be employed, but also to acquire the skills necessary to stay competitive in the job market.
Challenging Youth Unemployment
ReGeneration was "born" in a period of heightened unemployment and talent leak abroad, mainly due to the economic crisis Greece still faces today. Thus, the primary objective of the program is to help combat youth unemployment and brain drain, by offering young people the opportunity to take their first steps as professionals right here in Greece, joining the labor market through a holistic program that integrates paid work, training, community service and personal development.
