“Hack the Hood: Building Character through Building Competency”
Learn how Hack the Hood uses project-based learning as a strategy to create new behaviors that transform youth, as well as the perceptions of youth by local neighborhoods. Through a curriculum focused on building youth leadership skills, an entrepreneurial mindset, and cultural competency, youth move from being passive consumers of digital tech to being knowledgeable workers and tech producers as they become valued resources to local small businesses. Come hear about character development and SEL in action from the youth themselves and their adult leaders. Workshop will be led by Jackie Shonerd, Susan Mernit, and Damon Packwood.
