Geno Gresham


Founder and CEO, Protect Detroit’s Future

I’m passionate about Black Male Achievement because growing up the trajectory of my life shifted because I had a mentor and a tutor. I also believe quality education is a human right, regardless of your socioeconomic status.

My passion for young people can be traced to my pre-professional days. Whether during my two terms with City Year of Detroit (Americorps Program), or my 5 years of service with the Greening of Detroit's summer youth program, I’ve always been passionate about youth development. The reason? Without the youth there is no future.

Outside of working with local school district, I’m committed to building out my newly started non-profit called, Protect Detroit’s Future. I enjoy reading black history books, camping and playing basketball on my free time.
