The Hidden Genius Project is a fast-growing, innovative organization founded by entrepreneurs. In 2012 we launched our flagship Intensive Immersion Program, serving five students in our first year, while staffed entirely by volunteers and a budget of $1,500. In year three, we were the winner of a $500K Google Impact Grant. By year five, Google doubled its investment with $1M in support.
Since 2012, we’ve served more than 6,700 youth across all of our programming opportunities. 123 Geniuses have participated in our 15-month Intensive Immersion Program, with cohorts in Oakland, Richmond, and (launched Summer 2020) Los Angeles.
