The Hidden Genius Project teaches coding and confidence to young men of color in Oakland
by Ibsa Inc - Saturday, 19 April 2014, 09:39 PM


Jason Young, founding mentor of The Hidden Genius Project, was struck by this imbalance in 2011 when he ran a Kickstarter campaign in Oakland for his edutech startup, MindBlown Labs. Young recognized how disenfranchised Oakland’s black community was from the rapidly growing opportunities tech has been bringing to the Bay.

“That didn’t make sense to me, especially considering that technology [as an industry] is more open than other traditional industries, namely in respect to minorities.” Like a number of locally-grown and fairly new nonprofits, such as Black Girls Code, Code 2040, Hack the Hood and Black Founders, Young sought to bridge the gap between the Bay Area’s most thriving industry and one of its most underrepresented demographics.

The urban landscape in America offers few, if any true economic opportunities presently to counteract the scourge of neighborhood crime, particularly those that involve drug sales, homicide and more violent person crimes of robbery and home invasions.

Most businesses in these urban neighborhoods are either small sole proprietorship’s or family partnerships, therefore they cannot afford to hire additional staff in many cases. Our programs provides enterprising youth and adults with alternatives and the freedom to work when they please and earn not just minimum wage, but a wage directly related to the amount of work they are willing to put in.

Activities provide a year-round opportunity to learn and master the skills of on/offline marketing, interactive web design, video production/promotion, public relations and salesmanship; as well as a chance to earn a little money through the sales of various products and services in-demand.
