History of the Program

In 2017, The Hidden Genius Project partnered with Uber to launch a first of its kind Career Prep Program for college engineering students. Our goal was to develop a scalable approach for mentoring and preparing underrepresented students to thrive in tech careers. With the guidance of Uber engineers, this program provides aspiring computer science majors the opportunity to learn technical interview skills, communication, self-marketing skills, and insights into how top engineers succeed.

In 2018, 16 Black male college students from around the nation joined the inaugural cohort and completed the program. On the heels of great success in the first year, this program will continue on to bigger and better heights in 2019.
