Nonprofit Spotlight: Generations

Generations logo

Generations, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation located in Charles County.  The organization’s mission is to provide community-based awareness programs, activities, and support to help teenagers successfully transition to productive young adults.

“Our belief at Generations is ALL TEENS should have the opportunity to participate in community-based programs, activities, and receive support established for their benefit; without regard to economic status, race, religion, gender, etc.”
         --Russell R. Gatewood, Founder/President

Generations was founded in 2017 to support teens ages 13-19 in Charles County.  The organization plans to broaden its reach to neighboring counties like St. Mary’s and Prince George’s in the future and be the place where teens can belong.

Core programs offered by Generations focus on building teen awareness about entrepreneurship (7 Year CEO), public service careers (PS We Care), financial literacy (TeenMoney), and work skills (ProTeen). 

SEED: Scholarship Enables EDucation

Generations will launch SEED, its first scholarship program, on January 15, 2020.  SEED awards will provide financial assistance toward tuition, room/board, and class materials for first year college or trade school students.

Primary SEED candidates are Charles County high school seniors graduating in 2020 and secondary candidates include teens raised in single-parent households and first-generation college/trade school students.

Eligibility requirements, application instructions, and complete program guidelines are available on the Generations website.

Generations plans to host the 2020 MLB Jr. Home Run Derby this spring.  The tournament’s first time in Charles County will be a unique opportunity for teens to participate in a local event with national implications.  Generations is looking for volunteer support from the community.

Contact information is available on the Generations website where you can also learn more about volunteer opportunities, the organization, and its programs.
