Last week, we introduced the Hack the Hood community to Brayan, a budding tech professional whose story inspired many community members to give on Giving Tuesday to Hack the Hood.
To further celebrate the work Hack the Hood has done in 2019 and lift up more of the community members within the organization, meet Claudia Rivas. Claudia is the owner of Oakland-based Senorita Vegerita and participated in Hack the Hood’s Bootcamp as Brayan’s co-collaborator in designing her small business’s website.
Yes, Hack the Hood introduces under-resourced youth of color to careers in tech by training them in 21st century relevant coding and design skills to leverage access to careers in tech, the economy they live in, and elevate their own economic mobility.
But Hack the Hood doesn’t stop there.
By connecting students to small businesses, that commitment to economic access is stretched to even more Bay Area community members to cultivate prosperity in the place they call home.
To close out 2019, we will be introducing you to more Hack the Hood community members to further show how far our efforts go to create economic impact for the Bay Area. We hope, after getting to know them all, you feel inspired and encouraged to further support our efforts for an even more impactful 2020.
Stay tuned to meet more of the Hack the Hood family!
