Overall, the field of lifelong learning and continuing education is currently successful in engaging Generation Y and positioning itself for a lifelong relationship with Gen Y, our entire future.

  • Gen Y participation in lifelong learning and continuing education appears to be as strong as one could wish given the austere economy for young people.
  • Gen Yers give every indication they understand that continuing education and updating their skills is critical to their career prospects.
  • Success with social media, website hits and other digital media suggest that programs are able to reach and engage Gen Y.
  • The number of Gen Y staff attending the LERN conference is another indication that programs are not only serving Gen Y, but hiring them, giving programs an inside edge on expertise for engaging Gen Y.
