Driving Engagement Amongst Youth of Color in Tech


Low-income youth of color are power users of mobile technology and social media, yet many don’t know they can turn those interests into a career. Hack the Hood addresses this critical gap with community driven, culturally relevant, real world learning that transforms disconnected youth from consumers of tech to creators, and prepares them for training and careers in the tech industry.
