Generation West Virginia is a statewide organization for and by young people who understand that finding your path isn’t always easy. We’re working to ensure that every young person has the tools, resources, and connections needed to make a home for their dreams here in West Virginia.

Our Programs

Led by and for young West Virginians, the GWV Network supports those who want to be engaged in their communities and excel in their workplaces.

Our workforce development hub connects local job seekers and employers in order to increase access to opportunity in the Mountain State.

With a focus on growth and connection, the Fellowship invites folks who believe in the potential of West Virginia to learn how to envision and create a fulfilling future here.

NewForce is a six-month, fully-remote, tuition-free coding school. Our goal is to build a tech economy in West Virginia that works for everyone.
