WHAT WE DO
York Solutions Charitable Foundation
The mission of the York Solutions Charitable Foundation (YSCF) is to support causes that provide educational, training, and professional development opportunities for underserved individuals.
Through our fundraising events and programs facilitated by York Solutions through Think IT, we’re able to give back to our partners and the community.
Our goal is to make a positive impact on lives of individuals within the communities we serve through the support of causes that align with our mission.
This organization is especially near to the heart of our CEO, Richard Walker, as he sits on the board. Genesys Works is a non-profit organization that enables underprivileged high school students to break through barriers and discover that they can succeed as professionals in the corporate world through meaningful work experience. Genesys Works identifies and trains motivated high school students in professional, technical, and communication skills in an 8-week intensive training program the summer after their junior year. Genesys Works Young Professionals then go on to work in year-long corporate internships around Houston, the Twin Cities, and Chicago.
