We provide an innovative skilled-volunteering solution. Through our decentral network of over 1300 skilled voluntary data scientists we democratize the potential of advanced data analysis and start projects with mission-driven organisations.
We are training committed data scientists in data privacy, project management and the communication with non-profit organizations. We are a platform to educate and connect the socially dedicated data analysts of tomorrow.
We advocate a broad dialogue about the potential and the limits of data science in civil society. We demonstrate in talks, workshops and conferences how to do good with data. We offer education for NPOs on data strategy, data privacy, data collection and data analysis.
Do you work for a NPO? You can discuss all your questions revolving around our work and data with one of our coordinators in our 1:1 data hour. Whether projects, educational sessions, events, data collection, or data analysis: we will see you there!
As part of our annual meet-up, the CorrelCon, which of course took place online this year, we didn’t want to miss our community night, despite general zoom fatigue. You can read about our experiences and tips for a successful community night in this blog post.
In August we launched our first CorrelAidX challenge: Over the course of 8 weeks, we called on our local chapters to use regional data, provided by the state statistical offices, from their region and submit creative data projects using the python package developed by Datenguide in collaboration with CorrelAid. Have a look at the amazing outcomes!
The Local Chapter Berlin hosted its first ever Online Data Dialogue event on June 11th, 2020, connecting two amazing NPOs - GoVolunteer and Amadeu Antonio Stiftung - with data scientist volunteers. In this post, we delve into what the teams discussed and what ideas they came up with to solve the challenges of the NPOs.
