* How we do it *

By organizing & hosting weekend DataThon events. A DataThon is a weekend event that matches up selected social organizations (that have well-defined data problems) with a team of volunteer data scientists to tackle their data-related challenges over a 24-48 hours period. The participants are fed throughout the weekend event & the results are presented to the social organizations at the end of the event. Some may refer to these types of events as "Hack-a-Thons", etc. These events are completely free for the participants and serve to energize, educate, and provide direct benefit to the NFP/NGO organizations, as well as to enlighten social sector groups about the power of being data-driven.
