JACKSONVILLE, Fla., – October 7, 2022
AI Squared, a new AI integration software company, today announced a donation of $5,000 to the Partnership for Child Health to support anger management, leadership development, and resilience navigation programming for Jacksonville youth at the Center of Hope at Emmet Reed. The official donation presentation takes place Monday, Oct. 10, at 10 a.m. at 1095 A Philip Randolph Blvd.
This donation announcement follows the keynote speaking engagement delivered by Benjamin Harvey, Ph.D., CEO, AI Squared at the Youth Empowerment Speaker Series event on Monday, Oct. 3, at the Center of Hope at Emmett Reed. Harvey was invited by the Partnership for Child Health to share his life and career journey growing up on the Northside of Jacksonville in challenging circumstances. Harvey’s inspiring story highlighted his tenacity and included resilience tips he learned as the former chief of operations data science at the National Security Agency and through his current venture, AI Squared, founded in 2019.
The youth in attendance asked very engaging questions, demonstrating remarkable promise. Hence, Harvey was immediately compelled to sew a seed in the community to be a beacon of hope for future youth in the STEM field.
“Originally being from Jacksonville, Florida, and understanding the societal, racial, and economic challenges that young individuals face on a day-to-day, it has always been my dream to make it out of this environment and one day give back. I’ve been able to fulfil that dream through this donation to the Partnership For Child Health using my company AI Squared as the vehicle for this amazing gift.”
Funding will support several key initiatives provided by the Partnership for Child Health.
“We’re extremely grateful and excited for the time, talent and treasure Dr. Harvey brought to the youth and families who attended the kickoff to the Youth Empowerment Speaker Series,” said Vicki Waytowich, Ed.D., Executive Director, Partnership for Child Health. “At the Center of Hope at Emmett Reed, we will continue to encourage youth through authentic participation and leadership opportunities as they develop the topics and identify speakers that are important to them and their community. Overall, the youth who attended were very responsive to Dr. Harvey’s ‘You can do this!’ message and his heart of gold.”
As a majority minority-owned firm, AI Squared consists of four founders and a staff of 95% African American and Hispanic American descent. Three of the founders are Jacksonville natives.
