General Intelligences 
A Student-Led Non-Profit 
Making Common Sense More Common & Tackling Educational Inequality Globally

Our Belief: Making Common Sense More Common with Peer-to-Peer Support

General Intelligences is a nonprofit organization committed to providing high school and undergraduate students from disadvantaged communities and school districts with resources for success. General Intelligences is one of the first peer-to-peer initiatives to help students gain crucial life skills and the social capital necessary for success, which is taught as a “hidden curriculum” at well-funded schools.

Students from First-generation and Low-Income communities, Refugee Communities or Ethnic Minority groups, or who identify as members of these communities, often struggle with the transition to college and additional challenges beyond matriculation.

Our organization guides students with the transition and adjustment to post-secondary institutions- a crucial aspect left out of many college related organizations.
