How We Can Help

NYC Data Science Academy teaches Data Science/ Data Engineering, trains companies and their employees to better profit from data, excels at Data/ Big Data Project Consulting and connects Trained Data Scientists to our industry.

 Data Science 4 Good is the non-profit arm of NYC Data Science Academy, where we aim to help drive social good globally by partnering with social enterprises and non-profit organizations.  We have thousands of students and alumni who are always looking for challenging data and analytic problems.  This platform is to connect these talented resources to real world social problems that can be solved with data!

Typical engagements last 4 weeks, and we will provide at least 1 Data Scientist and 1 Engagement Manager for your project.  However, we ask you mirror that engagement model, by providing 1 Analyst and 1 Project Leader from your staff.

Please contact us at contact@datasci4good.org if you would like to learn more or are interested in partnering with Data Science 4 Good!

 

Engagement Model


The idea is simple.  If you are a social enterprise or non-profit and have a problem that can be solved with data science, visualization or analytics, we can help.  Data Science 4 Good will provide an Engagement Manager to help scope and lead the project, and work with your organization to find a top Data Scientist through NYC Data Science Academy.  Your organization must provide a project sponsor and an analyst who understands your data.

Projects will typically last 4 weeks.  The DS4G Engagement Manager will first work with the Partner Project Sponsor to understand the mission of the organization as well as the project, then collectively the team will layout a specific goal.  Projects can include building visualizations to demonstrate insights, building predictive models, assessing key drivers of impact, etc.  The projects will be at no financial cost to the Partner Organization, but given the limited resources available, we ask you contact us ASAP with as much detail as possible on your proposed project.
