TXT’s Hustle N’ Code Hackathon is an event aimed at inspiring youth who live in public housing developments (i.e. “The Projects”) to address pressing issues in their communities using technology. TXT is the only organization in the nation that is hosting hackathons directly in public housing developments, and the need is high: our data has shown that less than 1% of youth in public housing developments in South Central have access to the internet, and less than 5% have access to a computer at home. Thanks to Hustle N’ Code, hundreds of teens from South Central Los Angeles will be exposed to computer science for the first time. For more information on registering, contact Teens Exploring Technology through their website.
