Odaine’s story: Tech Talent Accelerator program
WHY GENERATION WORKED FOR HIM
He loved that the Generation staff built up his confidence and made the class feel like a real workplace. The role-playing exercises prepared him for day 1 on the job. His instructor was not only knowledgeable but funny and approachable.
Additionally, Odaine felt so energized and motivated that he kept working outside the classroom hours, to build up his project portfolio. He had a great relationship with his mentor, Jide, who helped him manage stress and work on his soft skills. The ‘Future Orientation’ training module helped him think coherently about his goals and what steps he would take to get there.

GOING FORWARD WITH SUPPORT
