Grand Circus is excited to host a launch party celebrating the kickoff of the new Project  Rising TIDE initiative with the City of Grand Rapids. 

Project Rising TIDE is all about making sure everyone has access to earning a career in tech if they want one. Our goal is to connect local residents to introductory and advanced coding training opportunities while enhancing the talent pool to support local companies. We believe that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” By actively supporting both people and businesses, we all grow stronger together.
