We’re proud to announce the acquisition of our new headquarters in the heart of Oakland, CA! The purchase of this 20,000 square feet, four-story building was made possible in part by generous donations led by the CesTRA Butner Family Foundation. Once redesigned in late 2022, the building will serve as an anchor site to house incredible, grass-root Black-led community organizations.

The mission of The Hidden Genius Project is to train and mentor Black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills to transform their lives and communities. Working to deepen our roots in Oakland, Richmond, Los Angeles, CA, and Detroit, MI, by becoming a community pillar and trusted partner, The Hidden Genius Project will continue to connect and build with a myriad of stakeholders and Black-led organizations to enhance their impact throughout these cities and beyond.
