Hack the Hood/Center for Media Change

Nonprofit in Oakland, CA

Hack the Hood is closing the digital divide by providing “technical training in high in-demand multimedia and tech skills to youth who will then apply their learning through real-world consulting projects with locally-owned businesses and non-profits. During sprints that are 6-weeks long, low-income youth gain hands-on training and experience executing search engine optimization; building mobile friendly, responsive web sites using template software; and getting clients listed in local maps and directories. Youth also learn transferable leadership, entrepreneurship, and life skills.”
