* How we do it *

By organizing & hosting weekend DataThon events.

A DataThon is a weekend event that matches up three (3) 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 housed &
fed throughout the weekend event & the results are presented to the 3
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.

Specialties: Data Analysis, Volunteer Matching, Data Visualization,
Data Science for Social and Civic Sector.
