“At Genesis, we are committed to delivering the highest standards of safety and performance, with a design identity built around athletic elegance,” said José Muñoz, president and chief executive officer of Genesis Motor North America. “We are thrilled to deepen our support of TGR Foundation and STEAM education through youth programs at the Genesis Design Studio. At Genesis, we don’t just build world-class vehicles—we strive to create a better future for all.” 


Genesis takes pride in its design elements, focusing on creating products built with elegance and boldness. At the Genesis Design Studio, TGR Foundation students will have the opportunity to learn about the design process, creative thinking, and the wide variety of career paths at Genesis Design.  


“TGR Foundation is committed to empowering students to discover their passions and build skills for their career interests,” said Mike McKee, chairman of the TGR Foundation board of governors. “With the generous investment by Genesis and the Genesis Inspiration Foundation, we will continue providing opportunities for students to gain valuable experiences through our joint programs.”

The investment from Genesis and the Genesis Inspiration Foundation will help prepare students for STEAM based careers through multimedia classes offered at the TGR Learning Lab.
