Who We Are

Generation Charleston is a committee of the Charleston Area Alliance that gives young talent— professionals, creatives and workers of all trades— opportunities to connect, engage and make a difference in the Kanawha Valley.

That means community involvement, professional development, social interaction and networking. In short, it is a resource to integrate young talent into the Charleston community.
