The ability to affect change and do good in one’s community increasingly depends on having the right information at the right time to make the right decisions about things that are most important. Directors of community programs as well as funding agencies want evidence of impact and demonstrated efficiency in programs that serve our communities. Often, the information available to meet these needs are not well organized, not well understood, and not packaged in a way that helps those working in the community do their best.
Data Science for Social Good matches your data, your community expertise, and your experience, with data processing methods, computing power, and effective data visualization to help you make the decisions that are most critical to your organization and to our communities.
The FL-DSSG Program is a summer internship program that will match data science expertise with real-world problems. The FL-DSSG program will work with community organizations who are trying to affect change in their communities and who have data management, analysis, and data visualization projects that have the potential to shift understanding around a community issue, influence planning, revise practices, or see efforts in supporting community initiatives more focused or renewed.
