From the Interviews:
Social Support and Tech Vision
From the rich conversations with amazing youth and leaders, Winnow Research identified themes that describe the strengths and challenges for how the Hack the Hood program is reaching the youth they serve.
It became clear that the power of Hack the Hood is the social support and learning that is skillfully integrated with the technical skills that students are seeking. This allows students to see Tech as more than just coding, it is an exciting opportunity for their careers and their communities. They start to see themselves as creators and contributors.
