Hack the Hood
Hack the Hood's mission is to empower low-income youth of color with the knowledge, skills, and relationships they need to pursue careers in tech. By offering mentorship, culturally-relevant knowledge and 21st century skills, we believe youth can become creators of change in their communities.
Through our six-week bootcamp, youth learn to build websites for local small business clients. Through our year-round Alumni Membership Program, youth get ongoing case management, career coaching, peer community, further professional and technical training, and networking support.
To date, Hack the Hood bootcamps and workshops have trained over 250 youth to build websites for over 500 small local businesses.
GOAL: We believe that Black and Latinx people are powerful innovators. Our Bold Goal is that, by 2040, we are recognized and valued as such, we are leading benefactors to and beneficiaries of the innovation economy, and we have the economic and social capital we need to thrive and to build generational wealth.
VISION: We believe the nation as a whole will be stronger when the contributions of communities of color are sought out and included within the innovation economy. As result, in 2040, we envision a nation as a whole that is more equitable, innovative, and prosperous.
In 2040, Black and Latinx people are recognized and valued as powerful architects of technological, economic, and societal innovations. We are visible and prolific in the Innovation Economy. We are hugely successful across a wide range of metrics, within and beyond the Innovation Economy. Black and Latinx people's unique contributions are sought after and we have the power to pursue whatever career paths and opportunities we want. We see our success as possible and believable, and know that without a doubt we are capable. In 2040, Black and Latinx people succeed by being who we are, not by leaving parts of our identities behind.
