Our mission is to train and mentor black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship and leadership skills to transform their lives and communities. We help students see their own genius.
The Hidden Genius Project, founded in 2012 by five black male technology entrepreneurs, is committed to bridging the gap between the high unemployment rates of black male youth and career opportunities within the local technology sector.
We help students see their own genius and equip them with the necessary skills to navigate personal and professional spaces with success while maintaining their cultural identity and a sense of self through both our 15-month Intensive Immersion Program and Catalyst Events.
The Intensive Immersion Program provides high school students with 15-months of intensive technical and entrepreneurial training: Two 7-week summer sessions, one year of after-school programming and more than 800+ hours of training in:
Computer Science and Software Development
Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
Business and Entrepreneurship
Leadership and Manhood Development
Students learn multiple programming languages, develop their own software applications, and hone community leadership skills through robust coaching in written and verbal communications, goal-setting and healthy decision-making.
