Welcome by Derrick Oneal
Founder, Chief Relationship Officer, and life-long learner
On behalf of our whole team, thank you for spending some of your time with us on the NuuED blog! We have some great things to share with you. Whether you are a parent, an educator, a learner, a prospective team member, or just someone who has an interest in NuuED, we’d like to give you an inside look at the people and ideas that inspire us. Let’s jump right in.
“I believe that understanding an individual’s unique personality and learning style are the keys to unlocking potential and openings doors to a brighter future.”
Most new digital employment opportunities are going to be in blue collar fields. A recent article in Forbes points to the many new, local, “digitally enabled,” blue collar jobs that have been created in recent years, like drivers for Uber, handymen for TaskRabbit, or managers for Airbnb.
My why is very simple…90% of inner-city parents and students are not prepared for the blue collar tech jobs of the future. The faces of inner-city youth are representative of every race and nationality and they all share a commonality. These young adults (18 to 24) do not have any technology training, which will impact their ability to be employable. My mission is to educate and bring awareness to our future generations of the need for making technology a part of their lives. I did not create my services to merely be fun for users, but also to develop within them a love of learning and the desire to achieve. I believe understanding an individual’s unique personality and learning style are the keys to unlocking potential and openings doors to a brighter future. A brighter future for the next generation is in technology and helping them to get prepared is what motivates me every day.
