Georgia First Generation Foundation Proudly Sponsors Gwinnett Young Professionals' Journey Program

Georgia First Generation Foundation (Georgia FirstGen) is thrilled to announce its sponsorship of the Gwinnett Young Professionals (GYP) Journey Program as a workshop sponsor and presenting sponsor. This collaboration reflects GFGF's commitment to empowering young professionals and supporting their personal and professional growth in Gwinnett County.

The Journey GYP Leadership Institute, a comprehensive nine-month business leadership program, aligns perfectly with Georgia FirstGen's belief that growth is a continuous journey, not a destination. By combining the expertise of top leadership and development organizations in Gwinnett, the Journey Program offers participants a unique opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge through a series of workshops.

The program begins each year in August and concludes in April, providing an extensive curriculum that covers crucial areas such as emotional intelligence, values-based leadership, problem-solving, conflict management, diversity, equity, and inclusion, embracing change, communication, collaboration, leadership effectiveness, team dynamics, coaching and feedback, and envisioning leadership impact.

As a proud Journey Alum, the Journey Leadership Institute is the culmination of community and advocacy in furthering the future of Gwinnett leaders! The interactions with Journey participants, the engaging discussions from industry experts, and the genuine connections made throughout make this program one of the biggest reasons Georgia FirstGen contributes to the future of education in Gwinnett.
