At the end of the year, we are looking back and celebrating all we have accomplished.
One of Hack the Hood’s biggest accomplishments in 2019 was cultivating and solidifying partnerships with schools and community based organizations to provide Bootcamp workshops and after school programs on site to them to reach more young people. And there is no better example of this partnership model working out so well like Alameda Point Collaborative.
We can go on and on about all the reasons why this partnership model is efficient and effective but really, Marque, our program partner at APC, nails it when he speaks to what the Hack the Hood partnership model provides:
“Having proficiency in tools and technology is one thing and having the ability to feel confident when you meet new people and take new risks is another thing. It is wonderful to be around people who are so skilled in transferring that feeling to young people.”
In 2020, we are looking forward to providing both the tools to hone technical skills AND professional skills to build more confident young leaders that will continue to re-shape access into tech careers.
