CIVIC THURSDAY CLUB MEETING - Speaker Brandon Nicholson - Executive Director Hidden Genius Project - Hidden in Plain Sight: The Hidden Genius Project and its mission to raise the next generation of innovative leaders
The Hidden Genius Project trains and mentors Black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills to transform their lives and communities.
The Hidden Genius Project was founded in 2012 by five Black male entrepreneurs/technologists who were unnerved by the dramatic juxtaposition between the high unemployment of Black male youth and the plethora of career opportunities within the local technology sector. To address this challenge, the founders established a program to connect young Black males with the skills, mentors, and experiences that they need to become high-performing entrepreneurs and technologists in a 21st century, global economy.
