Adolescents are generally aware of their neighborhood conditions and opinionated about the changes they want to see. Yet, there is a low sense of empowerment and agency, and lack of academic relevance that deters them from active engagement. MyHood helps adolescents uncover, explore, and discuss topics related to their place as a means to engage them with their communities and issues that matter to them. Using an accessible mobile platform, adolescents map and analyze challenges and resources in their neighborhood to formulate opportunities for action. With MyHood, adolescents learn what they can do for their Hood together.
