About

In celebration of Juneteenth, the Black Xperience ERG has selected three non-profits supporting black communities in the California Bay Area. The non-profits range from training and mentoring Black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills (The Hidden Genius Project), to assisting them and other low-income residents find and retain employment (Dress2Win and Wardrobe for Opportunity). Donating to these groups means choosing to challenge inequality and supporting their important work.

The Hidden Genius Project

The Hidden Genius Project trains and mentors Black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills to transform their lives and communities. It was founded in 2012 by five Black male entrepreneurs/technologists who were unnerved by the dramatic juxtaposition between the high unemployment of Black male youth and the plethora of career opportunities within the local technology sector. They created a program to connect young Black males with the skills, mentors, and experiences that they need to become high-performing entrepreneurs and technologists in a 21st century, global economy. www.hiddengeniusproject.com

Dress for Success Global Educational Foundation

Dress2Win (the Dress for Success Global Educational Foundation) equips students with the soft skills necessary to further their education and to properly prepare them for their career and life goals. Support includes mentoring, exposure to diverse corporate environments and businesses, and community engagement. High school students participate in activities that include field trips to corporate campuses, internship and job interview workshops, etiquette dinners, and holiday toy drive/giveaways. Dress 2 Win also partners with Bio Med and Bio Science school curriculum programs. dress2win.org

Wardrobe For Opportunity

Wardrobe for Opportunity (WFO) provides access to transformational career support services for low-income Bay Area residents seeking employment and career advancement. WFO was founded in 1995 to help low-income women look professional and have hope for the future. It has evolved to provide a complete suite of career development services to a diverse group of low-income men and women, as well as a significant number of youths. The organization has created programs that not only help people find and retain employment and build a career, but also give them the power to make their own decisions, live a successful life, and ultimately become self-sufficient. To date, WFO has served over 30,000 low-income individuals and is a thriving organization with over 40 partnerships that include social service and job-training agencies across the Bay Area. www.wardrobe.org
