About Generation YES, a non-profit 501(c)(3)
Generation YES aspires to teach and empower students to use modern technology to solve problems in their schools and communities. With a strong research base and 14 years of experience, Generation YES projects and programs offer win-win solutions that benefit students, schools, and communities.
Our flagship programs include: GenYES (students helping teachers with classroom technology), TechYES (student technology literacy certification and peer mentoring), and TechYES Science (student technology literacy certification through science projects.) These programs offer school-friendly online tools, innovative project-based curriculum, and support to schools seeking to include students as leaders, mentors, and collaborators in technology integration, digital literacy, and college and career-readiness efforts.
Generation YES also designs and implements customized, large-scale projects such as College YES, NYSSTL, and others that offer innovative experiences for students in support of our mission. We are always on the lookout for partnerships that are creative, empowering, and sustainable to this end. See our projects page for more information.

About Generation YES and Full Disclosure
Generation YES is a non-profit organization. We are serious about our mission and we work hard to give our customers, clients and partners maximum value--teachers and children deserve nothing less. We hope what we do helps teachers align everyday practice with their own philosophy and empowers students to have a voice in their own education. To do that, we try to make stuff that inspires people to teach and learn in ways that are authentic and engaging. We make things free when possible, and hope you find all the materials available on this website reflect that intent.
We put some additional information about the people working here on our blog so it's easier to keep up to date. If you have any questions about this, please contact us and we'd be happy to answer them.
