HACK THE HOOD
Hack the Hood is a unique program that trains and mentors low-income youth of color in tech and web development and then deploys them to construct mobile-friendly websites for local businesses. www.hackthehood.org
"When youth in our program build a website for a small business, they are not only gaining valuable tech skills that can immediately increase their earning potential," said co-director Susan Mernit, "they are also helping struggling business owners reach more customers, and helping people in low income neighborhoods find the goods and services they need locally, so their money supports jobs close to home. This is the kind of virtuous circle that can be a real game changer for communities that have previously been shut out of the digital economy."
Proceeds from Score! tickets and totebags on August 21st will support their programs.
