It's simple...

When you make a donation to The Hidden Genius Project, you are empowering Black males to learn relevant technology skills, build an entrepreneurial foundation, and establish a professional network that will empower them to be innovators and agents of change.

Help us reveal the potential of one of societies most under-utilized assets: Black male youth. Help us inspire young Black men to create, solve problems, and meaningfully engage with the community around them. Invest in GENIUS today.
