Why We Do It
We want to make sure St. Louis-area youth in low-opportunity communities engage and prepare for these college and career opportunities with early-access and immersive opportunities like our hackathon and companion coding and leadership courses.
Currently, a strong pipeline to opportunity for isolated youth in St. Louis, its counties, and surrounding suburbs has not addressed the majority of teens who are economically disenfranchised and politically marginalized. With Hack4Hope, students open to early engagement toward a STEAM curriculum and adults in search of a connection with the future of St. Louis are connected, focused and sharing resources.
Hack4Hope is an exciting summer option where youth with little to no previous experience or goals engineer their own promising and profitable careers through technology.
