The Hidden Genius Project partnered with the Compton Girls Club for eight weeks to enrich STEAM programming for girls and non-binary youth from undeserved communities.
On Saturday, March 26, students came together at Helen Keller Park in South Los Angeles to present their very own digital magazines.
This event, hosted by The Hidden Genius Project and Compton Girls Club, ensured that participating students would have projects to take away with them for their efforts. The final showcase last Saturday allowed students to showcase their magazine projects to community partners, speakers, and staff.
The Hidden Genius Project trains and mentors black male youth in technology creation, technology, and leadership skills to transform their lives and communities. It also seeks to reveal the true potential of black male youth and transform their communities from the inside out.
Compton Girls Club’s mission is to provide girls and non-binary youth from undeserved communities access to resources, knowledge, and skills that are not readily accessible to them in their own neighborhoods. Compton Girls Club seeks to enrich its programming with an array of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) activities. Seeking to provide quality, culturally competent, and community-enriching technology education, Compton Girls Club reach out to The Hidden Genius Project to develop a partnership that delivered a dan and dynamic program to the range of participants.
