About Genius Hour

Genius Hour is a place designed as a professional outreach program for 8-12 students. Through this, University Students, Professors, Teachers, and Professionals who are
knowledgeable in their field are welcome to share their working experience, or teach a specific topic at an introductory level.  

These seminars will be held live digitally on platforms such as Google Meet for an hour. All classes will be FREE as we hope to empower the youth by providing education that is accessible to everyone. 

Our goal with Genius Hour is to provide resources and professionals who are able to inspire, motivate and move youth to discover their passions and drive; bringing forth an opportunity for growth and solidarity.

We hope you join Genius Hour! During these trying times, students have lost access to
outreach programs previously available. Genius Hour hopes to support our youth by
making seminars and workshops like these accessible and free for students!
