Hood Code is a free after-school and summer program for youth in New York City public housing (NYCHA: New York City Housing Authority). Since July 2019, Hood Code has taught youth ages 8 – 18 to code using Scratch, a block-based language, and WoofJS, a combination of block-based and text-based coding. The result is a substantial increase in participants’ self-efficacy and technology-based skills.
Our focus is on investing in children who grow up in NYCHA because they represent one of the nation’s most underserved populations. They lack access to the educational resources necessary to overcome generational poverty.
Hood Code seeks to ensure that children from marginalized communities learn the digital skills necessary to participate in today’s society while simultaneously developing new ways of learning, problem-solving, and positively contributing to the quality of life in our communities.
We are looking for teachers / assistant teachers who have some prior knowledge of coding with Scratch or any other software.
