Target Group:
The ideal participant for The Hidden Genius Project Immersion Program is a black male entering ninth-through-eleventh grade, and is willing to commit to at least 15 months and 800 hours of programming to transform their lives and communities. It is not necessary for them to have any experience with developing technology, but they should be very enthusiastic about the prospect of learning to build innovative projects. There is no minimum GPA requirement, nor are there any expectations around prior experience/leadership accomplishments. We place an emphasis on serving young people that would not normally have the means to access such an opportunity.
