About

A Qeyno Hackathon Academy is a great place to not just practice your coding and design skills, but to take them to the next level through an intense and immersive hackathon experience like no other. You will be working alongside high potential youth from low opportunity settings who are excited to learn from you. You will be supporting them in the development of their prototypes and transforming their ideas into innovations.

Hacking Alienation

#DREAMerHack is the next Hackathon Academy by Qeyno that will once again invite Bay Area youth to solve the world’s biggest problems through a three-day immersive experience with coding, design, and innovation.

Bay Area youth and mentors will work together to build "sanctuary" apps to address the growing insecurities and safety-risks for those affected by forced displacement, whether it be deportation, loss of stable housing, or natural disasters such as hurricanes or fires.

In the tradition of the hackers who conducted the Underground Railroad, #DREAMerHack is focused on "hacking alienation". Youth will become Trailblazers alongside their mentors and identify innovative ways to help others find their way towards freedom.
