We work with businesses who have a strong desire to invest in their community. MyGenius Inc. is thrilled to bring you this opportunity to support the next generation and, at the same time, gain major exposure for your business.
When you sponsor a micro-camp or in-school program, your investment directly impacts young people.
They experience a real difference in their personal lives and develop enterprise skills that connect with their passions to allow them to explore a purpose for their life.
They are encouraged to think beyond what is taught in school, and explore opportunities beyond traditional jobs. They look at what is possible as a leader, as a young entrepreneur and explore examples of social enterprise.

The Problem Today
There is a growing sense of urgency that the education system is not preparing our youth adequately for the demands of today’s workplace, never mind the workplace of tomorrow. Many young people lack confidence, a belief in their own abilities or the ability to handle pressure.
What’s more, we are seeing alarming trends in anxiety, depression and youth suicide, as young people become disengaged, find learning irrelevant and struggle to recognise their value.
Even with the exponential growth in technology to connect us, we as a global society feel more disconnected than ever…from who we are as individuals as well as from each other.
With this disconnection we are often faced with not knowing where to turn when we want to give back to our communities and feel that sense of connection to give our lives purpose and meaning. Corporate philanthropists are also facing an abundance of data to guide their generosity, as well as often inaccurate and irrelevant data.

The Solution - First Steps
What if we valued each other for the unique amazing humans we all are from the moment we enter our first ‘community’, our schools? The solution begins with Genius Camps!
Genius Camps offer personalised learning over a fun-packed 2 days. Each participant will learn what makes them unique, and identify their natural brain wired strengths based on the ‘Talent Dynamics for Young People’ assessment.
In our ever growing global society we need to feel connected with one another and giving back is a huge factor in the sense of belonging, one of the key pillars in the Science of Happiness. One of the key components within Genius Camp is connecting our attendees' passions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how they can give back and feel connected to something bigger than themselves.
Our Geniuses will:
