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

Our Belief: Making “Common Sense” Education More Common

General Intelligences is a non-profit organization that aims to mitigate education inequity and help students 17-26 years old domestically and internationally from disadvantaged and marginalized backgrounds. Gen Intel aims to do so via cultivating an understanding of how to navigate the “hidden curriculum”, providing free & high quality resources for developing important adult life skills and building students’ social capital. We provide students from disadvantaged and historically marginalized communities with resources for post-graduate socioemotional wellbeing and professional success across numerous fields.

The belief that schools are the great equalizer, helping students overcome the inequalities of poverty, is a myth.”
