The Generus Story
Generus began when our founder, Jamie Larsen, began connecting college-age volunteers with charities in Boston, Massachusetts. She saw that when people come together around shared community service goals, the results go far beyond good deeds, as important as they are. Friendships form. Mentor/mentee pairings emerge. Networking happens without anyone pulling out a business card. All the while, the basic human hunger for purpose and a chance to meaningfully contribute is satisfied. Service, she realized, is the key to finding real connections in a hyper-connected yet fundamentally disconnected workforce.
Today companies engage Generus to identify the community service concerns and priorities of their workforce, and to create and execute custom volunteer projects that optimize both employee availability and impact for local and global good.
Generus is a privately held corporation headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
