Generation USA, a nonprofit organization that transforms education to employment systems, is excited to announce its partnership with the College of Southern Nevada, a public community college in Clark County, to offer free, online Digital Marketing Analyst and IT Help Desk Technician training.

This initiative is part of Verizon’s Citizen Verizon responsible business plan to prepare 500,000 individuals for jobs of the future by 2030. Verizon is investing more than $44 million over several years in Generation to help close the opportunity gap for workers and increase access to digital skills.

Through this partnership, Generation will provide students at the College of Southern Nevada with opportunities to build and refine the skills needed to excel and launch new careers upon graduation. The courses are open to anyone who’s interested in pursuing a career in the technology field.

The College of Southern Nevada is the largest higher education institution in the state of Nevada and offers more than 180 degrees and certificates in 70 academic programs, including 26 degrees available entirely online.

All of these offerings complement Generation’s goal of transforming education to employment systems to prepare, place, and support people in life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Thanks to this partnership, students at the College of Southern Nevada, a fully-accredited institution, will now have access to Generation’s free, fully online Digital Marketing Analyst and IT Help Desk Technician programs that provide participants with information and resources to become successful in each role.

In addition to these programs, Generation offers a number of online reskilling programs that provide free resources and access to multiple career pathways and full-time employment opportunities in high-demand technology sectors including Jr. Cloud Practitioner, and Jr. Web Developer.

Each program takes an average of 10 to 12 weeks to complete.
