COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

On-site Community Programming

Since 2012, The Hidden Genius Project has served thousands of young people through its intensive and exposure-based programming. One of the cornerstones of our growth has been our ability to introduce collaborative programming on-site with our community partners. Through this component, we have deployed dozens of alumni from our Intensive Immersion Program as Youth Educators to facilitate technology programming for local youth and the greater community.

YOUTH EDUCATORS

Alumni Transforming Their Communities

Hidden Genius Alumni (graduates of the Intensive Immersion Program) are trained, in partnership with East Oakland Youth Development Center, to support the next generation of Hidden Geniuses and serve as brand ambassadors and educators – delivering content and curriculum to the greater community (school-age through senior citizens) through our Catalyst and Community Partner Programs.

ALUMNI VENTURE SEED FUND

On November 3, 2020, The Hidden Genius Project launched its inaugural Alumni Venture Seed Fund — a rigorous program designed to support the advancement of our young entrepreneurs through the five phases of startup development, while intentionally supporting a deeper understanding of the space and application.
