About the sites
Hack the Hood youth use easy-to-use platforms like Weebly to produce beautiful and functional sites for small businesses. We prefer using Weebly because the platform:
- provides beautiful on-trend templates that provide a good starting point for high-quality sites.
- is easy for small businesses to access and update after the youth is finished designing the site.
- provides basic accounts that are always free, as well as affordable upgrades for more advanced features.
- provides an easy entry point for the youth to learn web design, and is flexible and customizable as they learn coding later on.
